Snow report information is compiled and interpreted from various Japanese weather sites and models made current for the day and the 3-5 day outlook. Snow fall 24hr periods are measured at approximately 730am daily in Hirafu Village base lifts and data from the avalanche report which indicates accumulations at both the base of Moiwa and the 1000metre level. Further on mountain observations are also included and like any ski resort, more intense snow accumulations occur at mid and upper mountain elevations of average approximations of 20%. These approximations are conservative. Hence, base lift depth historically speaking is almost 50% less on any given year than mid to top station snow pack.

Really? Another bluebird here in Niseko? Loving it! The next few days looks good for steady snow, it will be back later tonight and a decent accumulation is expected through the weekend and into next week, so we are enjoying this sunshine as much as we can! #niseko #japan #japow #hirafu #iloveniseko #bluebird #bluebirdday #ski #snowboard #skijapan #skiresort #winter #snow #stoked #sunshine #hokkaido #pow

The powder is back again! Temperature is dropping fast and we have 15-20cm of new pow from base to top since around midnight. Yep heavy blizzard condition will continue through tomorrow but this means more significant accumulation! Some serious wind will pick up by lunchtime up top so upper and lower lifts may struggle, fingers crossed! Layer up people - it's freezing! #Niseko #Japan #Hirafu #Hokkaido #ski #snowboard #skijapan #winter #skiresort #powdersnow #japow #iloveniseko #pow
