Myoko Snow Report: 13 December 2013

There is bad news unfortunately – some of the Myoko ski resorts were scheduled to open this weekend but given the thin base there will be some delays.

Breaking news! Late change to plans – Akakura Onsen WILL open tomorrow 14 December (see below).

If you are already in Myoko the opening ceremony takes place this Sunday 15 Dec at 10am at the Myoko Ski Shrine in Myoko Onsen Hoshino Park. This ceremony is to pray for good snow and safety for the upcoming season.
