*26cm or more has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:30 today the temperature was -7°C. The storm rolled into town last night delivering strong winds and heavy snowfall. It is currently snowing with strong gusty winds. Will be interesting to see what lifts open today. Looks like the wind will slowly drop throughout the day and on the weekend it will be ON!

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.
