Niseko Snow Report, 13 December 2019

Freaky Friday the 13th!

*8cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was -3°C. We are back in business with a welcome top up of fresh snow and sub zero temperatures. The winds are still moderate but the higher lifts will hopefully be running this morning. The snowpack has taken a beating over the last few days with rain and the warmer temperatures – coverage will still very thin in most places so caution is advised. Tomorrow looks very promising for heavy snowfall!!

360niseko Snow Station Readings Disclaimer

The 360niseko’s snow station for the 2019-20 season is in Higashiyama at 200m *The Hirafu Gondola is at 305m. Please be aware that this new reading is NOT in Hirafu village but a few kilometers down the road. There is always a deviation how and where the snow falls – the area is famous for micro climates and mini weather patterns. Some days there may be 10cm in Annupuri and 25cm in Hanazono and vice versa – some days 30cm of fresh snowfall comes down everywhere!! Altitude plays a big part as well so please don’t take the 360niseko snow readings as being definitive – the readings are what is outside our house on the ground.
