Niseko Snow Report, 9 January 2020

DOH'

*1cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was -5°C. Went to bed dreaming of pow and woke up to the sound of wind. The dump did not materialize and it will be another day of sunshine and great views. There should be some wind blown deposits of snow around but there will also be wind blown ice patches and some increased avalanche risk. Please read the avalanche report and be prepared if venturing out the gates today. Looks like we are set for 2 days of sunshine with more snow forecast for Saturday.

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.
