Myoko Kogen Snow Report 30th January 2014

The rain before the snow

Myoko Kogen Snow Report

I’ve said it before, it doesn’t rain very often in Myoko however all of Honshu us currently seeing some very erratic temperature fluctuations and right now it has sent the freezing level super high leaving us with a bit of a drizzly day, however it is set to cool down and fingers crossed this turns to beautiful snow. On the up side you will have the mountain to yourself!

This is the scene at Akakura today…. yes this is a joke about it being nice weather for ducks, and no, I don’t regret this terrible sketch 🙂

Here is a crazy panorama from last week shot from the back of the Mt Myoko crater, click to see slightly larger version 🙂
