Be careful of super icy roads!

By 29th January 2019 Niseko Snow Report

5 cm of fresh snow has accumulated in Niseko in the 12 hours to 7am.


Conditions at Hirafu midway station (820m)
Snowfall estimated: 10 cm
Temperature:  -7 °C
Wind:  N 17 m/s

Conditions observed in Niseko Town (139m)
Snowfall observed: 5 cm
  -2 °C
Wind: NNW 3 m/s

It’s snowing lightly outside. It snowed heavily yesterday afternoon. The road was super icy and slippy last night…

10 cm of new snow fall is not enough to cover old tracks. I might go to Hanazono and check the snow condition. If the condition is not right, I just enjoy the groomers. Hanazono has many fun items on the slopes such as waves, kickers, banks etc. So I never get bored if there is no fresh snow!

There are many small low pressure around Hokkaido. More snow is coming, please ride and drive safely today.
