Have you booked your SkiJapan.com Mountain Guiding yet ?
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.
