*3cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 6:45 today the temperature was -5°C.
Just a dusting overnight but there is still plenty of good snow out there!Looks like we could score some bluebird turns out there this morning! The week ahead is looking nice and cold but there is not a lot of snowfall forecast so today is the day to scoop up some fresh stuff while you can. Conditions will still be dangerous in the backcountry and even side country so be prepared and carry a beacon, shovel and probe at least and look out for your group and fellow skiers and boarders out there. Have a great day!

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.
