First Myoko Snow Report of the season – 13 November 2013
Welcome to the first Myoko Snow Report of 2013/14. The snow has started falling here a few days earlier than last year which hopefully bodes for a good season to come. Many long term forecasts also seem to point in that direction.
View from our office this morning
Akakura Onsen this afternoon
48 Hr Snow Fall: 50cm in Myokokogen, approx 100cm in Akakura
Current Snow Depth at Base: as above
Current Snow Conditions: Fresh and light but no lifts running
Current Temperature: 2° at 11.00am (at The Heart of Japan office in Myokokogen)
Current Weather: Cloud, light fluffy snow falling
Current Visibility: Not much on the mountain!
Here’s a video that we took from the office this morning. The snowfall has been fairly constant over the last 48 hours. It will ease off today or tomorrow and we might very well get complete melt. At least that will give us time to get our snowblower sorted before the real start to the season. 🙂
