Myoko resorts on the opening weekend: 18 Dec

Sorry for the lack of updates. Should be more regular from here on in. It’s been a good start to the Myoko ski season with the following resorts opening up some areas – Tangram, Madarao, Akakura Onsen, Akakan and Myoko Ski Park. The remaining resorts will be opening up sometime between the 21st and 23rd December. There’s been nearly a metre and a half of snow fall over the last three days. Our contacts at the Windsor Hotel report that the snow has been falling regularly but there has still been some bluebird hours available. Next big falls coming just before Xmas.

72 Hour Snow Fall: 140cm

Current Snow Depth at Base: 100cm

Current Snow Conditions:  Fresh, now building a fair base.

Commentary: Good base at open resorts, varying from 60cm at Tangram to 120cm at Akakura. Looks like a good start to the season ahead.

Current Base Temperature: -4°

Current Weather: Light snowfall following heavy recent falls

Current Visibility: Fair with occ. fog
