Niseko
Snow

Niseko’s snow falls in great volumes and is up there as the best powder in the world. No one can really agree on the average annual snowfall as there’s too much of it to keep track of, but it’s usually somewhere between 10 – 15 metres a season.

Siberian weather patterns bring fabulous dry snow over the Sea of Japan, however although the temps on the mountain are usually very cold and the powder dry, the climate in the villages at the base of Mount Niseko Annupuri is very agreeable throughout winter.
