Observed snowfall in previous three Japan winter seasons

Observed snowfall at base areas of popular snow resort regions of Japan. This page will be updated at the beginning of each calendar month. For daily updates during the winter season and full archives and snowfall analysis data, please visit the respective 'Now' daily report pages on SnowJapan and current snowfall chart

VERY IMPORTANT:
* Different people recording numbers from base areas of the resorts;
* More snow often falls at higher elevations;
* READ THE INDIVIDUAL REPORTS FOR THE FULL PICTURE;
* Weather is complicated. If 10cm of snow falls overnight, it does not automatically mean that 10cm is added to the official snow depth base at a ski resorts. These numbers are unrelated to official snow depth numbers;
* IT IS NOT A COMPETITION
* This is not meant to be a scientific report - please read this!

This page was last updated in early April 2017 and includes data up until the end of March 2017.
