Niseko Snow Report & Forecast 21 January, 2017

>> Conditions at 820m (Hirafu midway station):

12-hour snow  0 cm (estimated)
Temperature  -8.7 °C
Wind N 7.8 m/s

>>Conditions observed 7 am at Village level:

12-hour snow  0 cm
Temperature  -6.6 °C
Wind  N 6.6 m/s

0 cm of new snow has fallen in the last 12 hours. I can see Mt. Yotei clearly but Mt.Annupuri is in the clouds.

I hope everyone had a great day yesterday. Perfect weather for riding in powder, groomers, parks, backcountry…everything!! I hiked up to the peak from the gate 3, there was a long line up but once I got the peak, everyone was smiling. I had a great long run on East face and walked back to Hanazono with a big smile:) Today, it seems like a grooming day. Let’s go out before the storm coming!

A storm is on the way to Hokkaido. Please keep your eyes on the weather forecast, specially if you have flight tickets on Monday.
