Hokkaido's powder snow is the stuff of legends among skiers. The mechanics that allow such epic dumps in to fall in Hokkaido owe themselves to the cold air that blows in from Siberia that turns to north-western seasonal winds that cross over the Sea of Japan collecting an abundant amount of moisture. The moisture-filled air creates dense snow clouds that bring heavy snowfall to the western seaboard of Hokkaido. The dry air left over from after the snowfall on the western seaboard is then carried to the lower inland areas of Hokkaido such as Niseko, Furano and Tokachi, turning in to extremely cold air as it rises along the slopes of the mountains in the area, forming snow clouds again and bringing snowfall. This cold and dry air is what creates the dry powder snow that falls over inland Hokkaido. The geography of the area and weather conditions of cold air and way the snow clouds are formed are the key secrets to Hokkaido’s powder snow.
