Niseko Snow Report, 4 February 2019

Bluebird to Greybird.

*3.5cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was 1°C. We have warm conditions and wet snow. It is a bit of dismal morning and to be honest good morning to stay in bed! But for people here for a good time not a long time conditons on the mountain will be….ok. The pick is to get up early and hit the groomed runs before the expected gale force winds kick in. The good news is cold temperatures and heavy snowfall will return later today and the rest of the week ahead is looking good.

360niseko Snow Station Readings Disclaimer

The 360niseko’s snow station for the 2017-18 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.
