A New Year Snow Update

After being out of town since the afternoon of the 31st we found a 50cm compacted accumulation on the snow station. Looking at the Snow Japan Niseko Now figures we had accumulations of: 18cm on Jan 1st , 24cm on Jan 2nd and 18cm on Jan – 60cm. Interestingly we only had a 10cm deviation as the snow compacted over 3 days. We will update our figures based on Snow Japans snowfall figures later today over the past 24 hr period.

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.
