Niseko Snow Report, 25 December 2020

by | Dec 25, 2020 | 20/21, Snow Reports | 0 comments

*9cm or more has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was -4°C. Overcast conditions. Most of the snowfall came down overnight. Yesterday’s warm temperatures and rain put a bit of a dent in the snowpack but this will be quickly forgotten. For backcountry enthusiasts the warm conditions will have created a layer in the snowpack to keep an eye on. Conditions on the mountain will be firm underneath with a excellent fast light layer of pow. Looking at the forecast over the next few days we have heavy snowfall forecast from this evening with must colder temperatures for the week ahead. MERRY XMAS!

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.
