Myoko Snow Report 17 January 2016

Report by David Churchill / Myoko Snowsports

The sun is out and it’s another beautiful day in Myoko.

Current Conditions
Sunny, Light winds and the temperature is sitting at -8 degrees.

24 Hour Recap
We had a sunny start yesterday before fog and light snow moved in around mid morning and we picked up a few cm.

Today’s Picks
Hotel B and Kokutai will be great if you’re looking for a fast groomer this morning. Elegant for a cruisy beginner run through the Sugi trees.

Weather Outlook
Calm today before light snowfall begins tonight. It will be a bit warmer during the day tomorrow as winds move around to the south. Snow up top and mid mountain however we may pick up a little sleet or drizzle in the village. A sharp drop in temperature tomorrow night as westerly winds take over and keep it cold until at least Friday. Plenty of snow in the forecast between now and Friday with 50+cm forecast over this period.
