Myoko Snow Report 18 December 2015: Good Morning Winter!

Myoko Snow Report 18 December 2015

Good Morning Winter!

Winter has arrived and it’s looking pretty good this morning in Myoko. About 15-20cm of fresh snow fell overnight and the village and mountains looked amazing at dawn. There’s no wind and it looks like we could see some sun today. More snow is forecast tonight.

The temperature was +0.5 degrees at 7:20 outside Red Warehouse lodge in Akakura so hopefully it’ll stay cold as forecast for the next 48 hours.

Here are a few shots from around the Akakura and Akakan:

What does this mean for skiing? Well, it’s a start but it’d only ankle deep – even if you were grass skiing. So we’re going to need more snow.

Many of the resorts scheduled to open over the weekend have postponed (see here) but as of last night Madarao was supposed to open this morning.

There’s still some snow forecast for tonight:

If that comes through, then it’s possible some resorts may still decide to fire up a lift or two but realistically whatever riding there to be done over the weekend will probably be pretty token.

But it’s a good start and hopefully it’ll be all systems go before too long. Bring on winter!
