Myoko Snow Report 1 January 2016: Happy New Year!

Myoko Snow Report 1 January 2016

Report by David Churchill / Myoko Snowsports

Happy New Year everyone. The snow gods brought us another 15cm+ overnight to bring the snow base to 100cm. Light snow this morning and clear skies expected this afternoon.

Lots of people out and about in Akakura last night with many people heading to the local Shine at midnight to receive blessings and welcome in the New Year.

The snow also came to the party with 10+cm on the ground by 1am and close to double that by the time Akakan fired up its gondola at 6:15 for dawn skiing this morning. Those keen enough to get out of bed (and sober enough to ski) were rewarded with free sake and fresh powder turns. Not a bad way to start 2016!

Knee deep pow - a pretty good way to kick of 2016!
