Myoko Kogen Snow Report

The snow continued right through most of yesterday morning bringing half a metre of fresh to most resorts over a 24 hour period. It slowed down later in the afternoon and then it’s been very cold overnight.

Today there will be plenty of powder to be found on the side and amongst the trees. The sun is shining, the sky is blue, go out there and rip it up folks! This is what you have to look forward to.
