Niseko Snow Report, 5 January 2020

by | Jan 5, 2020 | 19/20, Snow Reports | 0 comments

*8cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was -12°C. A cold morning with a super light layer of the fresh stuff. We have had enough to keep the course runs in sweet condition but not enough to cover in yesterdays tracks or open up more terrain across Niseko United. Looks like Kutchan got down to -18 overnight so the snow will be super light this morning.

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.
