Warm before the Storm

Myoko Snow report 22 December 2015

It’s a foggy and damp morning in Myoko today. The temperature looks like it stayed above zero in the village overnight, and it was +3degrees outside the Red Warehouse Lodge at 7:30am this morning. We’ve had a bit of rain down here in the village over the past 24 hours which has taken a bite out of the recent snow. Up higher they may have seen a bit of snow overnight, but whatever fell will be wet. Akakura Onsen are running Yodel 2 & 3 lifts today if you’re keen for a few laps.

Despite the moisture around at the moment, it’s not all doom and gloom and for the committed, there are some early season turns to be had. Here are a couple of shots from Nozawa over the past two days before the weather closed back in:

The weather is supposed to clear up tomorrow with the freezing level sitting right up around the top lifts for the next two days.

Looking forward, the good news is that we are still looking a really big dump as the freezing level drops from Christmas onward and some really severe weather moves in from the north-west on boxing day.
