As we venture into March and past the 10 metre mark for cumulative snowfall, it seems as good a time as any to reflect on the season so far. As always, Niseko has treated us to some unforgettable days on the mountain, with some of the deepest, driest conditions going round as well as a recent string of beautiful bluebird days.

With that said, there was one month this season that comfortably outperformed the others, at least in terms of snowfall. December received over 519 centimetres of the snow at an average of 18cm per day, more than the combined total for January and February!

Take some time to check out the figures below, which were compiled using data from 360niseko's daily snow reports. And keep your fingers crossed for March, which we are hoping will bring us plenty more deep snow, sunny sky, and quality skiing!
