Niseko Snow Report, 2 December 2021

by | Dec 2, 2021 | 21/22, Snow Reports

*11cm or more has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 6:45 today the temperature was -3°C. The snow feels just like classic Hokkaido powder. This is the first big bad storm to hit for the season. Gale force winds, snowfall and colder temperatures will have potentially made the roads very dangerous. Beware.

We have had warm temperatures and a lot of rain since the last report on the 28th of November. It this stage the resorts have not postponed any openings so chances are good the the upper mountain will open on the 4th.

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.
