Myoko Snow Report 29 December 2015: Plenty of Pow Overnight.

Myoko Snow Report 29 December 2015

After a perfect cold and clear day yesterday, we woke up to a really solid dump of fresh powder in Myoko this morning. The image above was taken yesterday at Seki Onsen. After another 50cm+ overnight, today will be deep to say the least. If you haven’t been out on the hill yet, you should probably stop reading this and get out there asap.

Here in Akakura, the moisture didn’t hit until late yesterday night but by 6:00am we had 30cm+ on the ground. Another 10-15cm has fallen since then and it’s still snowing lightly. It wasn’t super cold overnight, so the snow may be a little heavy, but it’ll still be a fun, deep powder day out there.

Outside Red Warehouse Lodge in Akaura early this morning. We’ve got another 10-15cm since then.

The temperature was -1 at 6:30 am and is forecast to drop throughout the rest of today.

Akakan reported 40cm of fresh overnight with an 85cm base this morning. Guests returning from the mountain reported waist-deep drifts on the upper un-groomed slopes.

The Myoko Snow Sports crew hit Seki Onsen yesterday and reported knee-to-thigh deep powder. The resort reported 50+cm of snow overnight and a 1.5cm base, so today should be pretty good over there.

This snow on top of the base from the past few days should allow the resorts to opening up properly from now on. However, cover is still marginal off-piste so be careful if you duck into the trees.

The temperature is forecast to warm up a bit over the next few days before we get some more snow on Thursday night.

If you haven’t skied yet today, get out there and enjoy a proper powder day in Myoko!

From now to Thursday we should see light winds and better visibility. With the temperatures staying reasonably cool it should be fun skiing on a good base at all resorts.

Here are a few images from Akakan yesterday. Most of the mountain was open, and it’s really starting to look like winter in Myoko.
