by | Jan 20, 2023 | 22/23, Snow Reports | 0 comments

*10.5cm or more has fallen since 07:45 yesterday in Niseko. At 7:15 today the temperature was-9°C. After a couple days of sweet weather a big bad winter cold front rolled into the region last night bringing with it heavy snowfall, colder temperatures and ……wind. With wind in the forecast for most of the weekend it is hard to say what lifts will be operating. Conditions in the backcountry and even in the resorts will be dangerous.

360niseko Snow Station Readings Disclaimer

The 360niseko’s snow station for the 2022-23 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.
