Snowfall in Niseko, 4 January 2019

Looking over the figures reported by Ski Japan and Snow Japan from Jan 1st i just went for the average between the two.
Jan 1 20cm and 15cm = 17.5cm
Jan 2 36cm and 26cm = 31cm
Jan 3 7cm and 5cm = 6cm

We have used the above figures to update our accumulative snowfall total. Have a great day.

360niseko Snow Station Readings Disclaimer

The 360niseko’s snow station for the 2019-20 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 what is outside our house on the ground.
