Niseko Snow Report, 30 November 2019

So close but so far away.

*17cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was -5°C. Beautiful light powder again today in Niseko. The wind is calm and if we had more base and the resorts were open we’d be crowing about it being a powder day…fresh tracks…faceshots etc etc. When are the resorts are going to open? That information seems hard to come by. Next week?

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.
