Myoko Kogen Snow Report

Well this morning we woke to another huge dump! Due to the amount of shoveling and extra work needed the snow report is a little late today!
Through all this chaos of shoveling and snow clearing it’s shaping up to be an amazing day on the hill with 60 – 70cm of fresh on top of an already awesome soft base 🙂

Just a reminder to all visitors to the Myoko area that you are not allowed to ride under lift lines, tempting as it might be. There are so many areas you are allowed to ride it is unnecessary to ride these areas. Although Myoko has always been fairly relaxed about off-piste ski patrol are currently on a mission to take passes of people who don’t follow the rules. So stay safe and do the right thing!

Meanwhile down in Sekiyama…
