Niseko Snow Report, 12 December 2023

by | Dec 11, 2023 | 23/24, Snow Reports | 0 comments

*0.5cm or more has fallen in Niseko for the last 24 hrs. At 08:00 today the temperature was -4°C. Another bleak cold morning. Visibility is low and the snowfall is disappointing for all concerned. Let’s hope the accumulation ramps up in the coming days.

For those is town suggest calling the resorts at 8:30 to find out what lifts are running and deciding from there. Options are very limited. Our pick is Hanazono if the Hana 3# lift is running. Second option would be Hirafu if the Ace #2 Center 4 lift is running which would mean the Ace #3 lift and Center course is open. If not beginner chairs at Niseko Village and Niseko Annupuri.

360niseko Snow Station Readings Disclaimer

Our intention is to post daily snow reports if there is snowfall but there are consecutive days of no snowfall then we will most likely not do a “Snow Report”
The 360niseko’s snow station for the 2023-24 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.
