Myoko Kogen Snow Report 21st January 2014

The calm before the storm

Myoko Kogen Snow Report

The weather calmed down yesterday and even though it went from sunshine to flat light the conditions were fantastic, fresh powder still to be found everywhere. There has been a further few centimetres added overnight adding a soft top to the base. Temperatures have remained cold today with some occasional heavy bursts of snow. Up on the mountain it’s pretty much a whiteout with limited visibility.
