Myoko Snow Report 28 December 2015: Cold and Clear

Myoko Snow Report 28 December 2015

It’s a cold and clear morning in Myoko today. The mercury was sitting on -6 degrees outside the Red Warehouse Lodge at 7:00am this morning with little wind. We got some snow yesterday, somewhere around ½ metre in village. All the resorts had lifts open, and there was some fun, early-season powder about all day.

David Churchill from Myoko Snowsports was out on the slopes with his camera:

Here are a few images from yesterday and this morning:

The trees are starting to fill in, but it’s still too soon to safely get off-piste. Be careful of branches and shrubs hidden under yesterday’s snow if you’re ducking of the side of runs in search of some fresh.

It should be clear and sunny all morning before the weather comes back in this afternoon, so get out there and enjoy a beautiful day on the mountain in Myoko.

Myoko Snow Report 27 December 2015: It’s Dumping!

Myoko Snow Report 27 December 2015

Report by David Churchill / Myoko Snowsports

The moderate snowfall last night is expected to continue into the day and become lighter tonight. A clear start to the day tomorrow before another 20-40cm tomorrow night.


Myoko Snow Report 27 December 2015

Conditions updates from Red Warehouse:

We woke up to the dull thud of snow sliding off the Red Warehouse roof at 2:30am this morning and it’s been bucketing down since then. The temperature was sitting around zero at 4:30 am in the village but had dropped to -1 degree by dawn. By 7:00am snow-blowers and loaders were in full force and there was at least 20-30cm of snow on the ground. It’s still dumping now and showing no sign of letting up any time soon.

It’s good to see the snow starting to pile up properly and this should be enough for the resorts to open a good number of runs. Seki Onsen reported nearly a metre of snow on the ground this morning.

It’s a good day to be in Myoko. Get out there!

A much needed 15cm of snow fell last night, however we will need a little more to open up the rest of the resort.

Here are a few pictures from this morning:

We’re expecting another 60cm over the next three days so hopefully we’ll have everything open soon.

Myoko Snow Report 24 December 2015: Warm Today, Snow Tomorrow

Myoko Snow Report 24 December 2015

Report by David Churchill / Myoko Snowsports

It’s sunny out on the mountain now, but there’s a chance we may see a bit of rain today ahead of the snow expected to hit tomorrow. We generally multiply the snow-forecast.com numbers by three so at this stage we’re looking at around 70cm between Friday and Sunday, which will set us up nicely for the season.

Myoko Snow Report 21 December 2015: Counting the days ‘till Christmas.

Myoko Snow Report 21 December 2015

Counting the days ‘till Christmas

It’s a warm and overcast morning with a light breeze and some very light drizzle around in Myoko today. The thermometer read +3.5 degrees outside the Red Warehouse Lodge village at 7:15am and things are starting to warm up. After a sunny day yesterday, we’ve had no new snow overnight and warm temps are starting to eat into the snow from the past few days around the village. The freezing level is forecast to stay high for the next few days with no new snow on the radar until Chistmas.

Akaura Onsen and Madarao will have (very) limited lifts open if you’re keen to get out there today. Other Resorts are awaiting new snow.

The good news is that we’re not going to have to wait long for a solid snowfall and it looks like the man in the red suit is going to deliver the goods this year.

Temperatures are forecast to drop through Christmas Day as the next lot of moisture moves in from the north-west. There’s a chance we might see a little rain lower down as that moves in, but that should quickly turn to snow over the whole mountain. By Boxing Day it should be nice and cold. With a bit luck we’ll be looking at a really solid dump of snow that should (fingers crossed) put down a good base over the whole mountain and allow resorts to get up and running properly.
