Niseko Snow Report, 7 February 2022

Over a meter of snowfall in the last 5 days!

*8cm or more has fallen since 15:45 yesterday in Niseko. At 7:15 today the temperature was -9°C. Well, not surprisingly it is still dumping here in Niseko. This morning we have already had patches of sun alternating with heavy snowfall. Long term residents have described the last week as as good as it gets. Looks like the snowfall will back off from mid week.

360niseko Snow Station Readings Disclaimer

The 360niseko’s snow station for the 2021-22 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 taken from what is outside our house on the ground.
