by | Mar 12, 2022 | 21/22, Snow Reports

*0cm or more has fallen since 07:00 yesterday in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was 1°C. Currently overcast and calm. At village level last night we had some heavy rain. The good news is that will have smoothed out the snow setting up some potential for spring corn snow and possible fresh snowfall at higher elevations.The bad news is the groomed runs will be firm and the rain will have loaded already unstable snow packs creating avalanche risk.

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.
