Niseko Snow Report & Forecast 8 December, 2016

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

12-hour snow  15 cm (estimated)
Temperature  -11 °C
Wind W 9 m/s

>>Conditions observed 7 am at Village level:

12-hour snow   -5 cm
Temperature  -5 °C
Wind  W 3 m/s

5 cm of new snow has fallen in the last 12 hours. It looks calm, cold morning.

Grand Hirafu opened holiday course again yesterday so that we can ride down to the bottom now, but this course is not beginner friendly yet. Taking gondola or center 4 lift to go down is fun, too as you don’t have a chance to do this in the high season:) Annupuri has also opend their lower part. There are still icy parts and hidden items, please ride carefully, and drive safely.

Next snow fall is coming tomorrow. Let’s hope it won’t get too windy and warm.
