Some calm before another storm
Myoko Kogen Snow Report
Apologies for a lack of report yesterday. One of our reporters was at a seminar and the other was doing his last shots and packing up ready for his return to Melbourne today. Thanks Matt Hull for your great contributions this season. On Monday Matt had a hike up to Naena Taki Falls with Bill from Dancing Snow. The falls are a popular ‘green season’ attraction but the access is somewhat limited in the winter. For those wanting to know more see Naena Taki Waterfalls info here and a map is here
Yesterday we had a bit of snow but it was mostly a clear day with lots of people out hunting the fresh stuff. Today the Myoko weather forecast is showing that we’ll be have a nice sunny day but with some more snow coming possibly tomorrow but looking definite on Thursday and Friday. It’s a beautiful but very cold bluebird morning here. There will still be some fresh stuff around although a lot was tracked out yesterday.
Down on the Japan Sea coast at Charmant Hiuchi they got a fair bit of fresh stuff but that unfortunately didn’t make it’s way to Myoko.
