Myoko Snow Report: 24th November 2014

First Myoko Kogen Snow Report for 2014/15

It’s been a cold October and November with quite a few bouts of early snow. The first snow fell in Akakura Onsen a couple of weeks ago. Here’s a video of it taken from Red Warehouse, not that it hung around on the ground for any length of time.

We still have a substantial mantle of snow hanging around on the tops of Mount Myoko and Mount Hiuchi. Unfortunately the resorts are a bit pessimistic about the mid-range forecast and have set the opening dates back to the third weekend in December. At this stage Myoko opening dates are:

Akakura Onsen: 20 December

Akakan: 20 December

Ikenotaira Onsen: 19 December

Myoko Suginohara: 20 December

Seki Onsen: TBA – mid-December

Madarao Kogen: 19 December

Myoko Snow Report November 2014

As you might have heard on the news we had quite a big shake here in Myoko a couple of days ago. Reasonably mild (mag 5.2) around Myoko area and nearby. The quake was centred around Otari near Hakuba with reports of it being 6.2-6.8 and there have been some continuing aftershocks. Nothing that will upset any plans for this winter in Myoko Kogen.
