Niseko Snow Report, 17 December 2023

by | Dec 16, 2023 | 23/24, Snow Reports | 0 comments

*9cm has fallen in Niseko for the last 24 hrs. At 07:00 today the temperature was -3°C. Great to have some significant snowfall today. Not so great that the snow is super heavy and like semi wet concrete on the snow station ( check our instagram post ). Higher up on the mountain it may be a different story. The temperature will drop through the day and it will be brutally cold from this evening so get ready for it. It will take a few days of solid snowfall to open up large swaths of terrain but hopefully we are wrong on that count. Wind will be a factor today. It will be brutally cold from tomorrow so get ready for it. The forecast looks epic for the next week and it looks like we are all in for a deep deep white xmas in Niseko!!

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.
