Niseko's best season in 20 years?

Since the middle of November this year it has been snowing in Niseko, most days and nights.

November stormed in with 188cm, which was quickly eclipsed by December, which came in with a massive 4 meters + .

January and February didn’t disappoint either with a healthy 3 meters each for these incredible months.

Incredibly it snowed 25 of February's 28 days and the tempaerature dial has rarely moved above 0.

Give or take a few centimeters as of the last day of February we are fast approching 14m of accumlative snowfall with a 5m base at the top of Niseko Annupuri.

2017 /18  has been a genuinely quantified epic season and one of the greatest in recent memory, a little proof below.
