Myoko Snow Report 11 January 2016: Good Start to the Week in Myoko

Myoko Snow Report 11 January 2016

Report by David Churchill / Myoko Snowsports

Cold and snowing this morning.

Current Conditions
Moderate snow, poor visibility and the temperature is sitting around -3 degrees.

24 Hour Recap
We had a sunny morning yesterday with clear skies the night before so it was pretty icy first thing. It was partly cloudy through the day so it softened up nicely before more snow moved in last night. It’s been snowing pretty consistently all night and we’ve scored another 15-20cm so far.

Today’s Picks
Head to the groomers this morning for a bit of fresh powder on top of hard packed snow. Any un-groomed runs will still be a little too icy and moguly this morning and we really need a bit more fresh snow to fill them in.

Weather Outlook
Moderate snow should persist throughout the day into tomorrow morning and we’re expecting another 15-20cm from this. Partly cloudy Wednesday morning before another 20-30cm on Wednesday night into Friday. Temperatures will remain very cold (-6 to -2 degrees) and winds will be light though this period.
