*0cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. Yesterday we had 2cm. At 7:00 today the temperature was -8°C. The waiting game continues. Yesterday we did have some serious snowfall…. for an hour or so in the morning but it did not last long. With no snowfall overnight conditions on the mountain will be hard and fast – just the way some people like it. For the rest of us fingers crossed for a dump this afternoon and continued snowfall for the the rest of the week. The forecast does say that….

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.
