Myoko Snow Report 8 January 2016: Clear Skies and Fresh Snow

Myoko Snow Report 8 January 2016

Current Conditions
Clear morning with very light wind. Cool overnight and with a bit of ice around on the roads this morning. It snowed into yesterday evening so there should be fresh up on the mountain. Temperature was -0.5 outside Red Warehouse in Akakura this morning. The small low pressure cell that was forecast to give us a temperature spike today looks like it may not develop as strongly as expected so fingers crossed it stays cold today ahead of more snow tonight and later in the weekend. It’ll be a great morning out on the hill. Get out there.

24 Hour Recap
It started snowing before dawn in Myoko yesterday and it continued dumping all day. In all we probably got around 20-25cm. From all reports it was a fun day at Akakan and Madarao. Shiga Kogen also got some much-needed snow, and you’d assume the same for Nozawa. The snow cleared up in Myoko late evening but there’s more on the way tonight.

Today’s Picks
It should be a great morning on the mountain. Groomers will be good with some fresh snow. Still probably too early to hit the trees, but the snow should be in good condition. Get up there and have fun!

A couple of shots from this morning:

Weather Outlook
We’re back in a northerly airflow and we’ve got some snow on the ground. These are good things. Even better is that the temperature looks like it’ll stay reasonably low through today ahead of good snowfall tonight. Things should stay cold right through into next week. With another good dump expected Sunday night through Monday, next week is looking really good.
