*15cm or more has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was -6°C. Another overcast morning with light snowfall. Heavy snowfall predicted later today and then a super cold system moving into town from tomorrow. The going just keeps getting better! At this rate we should be hiking the peak by the 1st of January 😉

360niseko Snow Station Readings Disclaimer

The 360niseko’s snow station for the 2020-21 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.
