After a nice dump earlier this week there’s been a couple of quite warm days in Myoko with no snow to speak of. But as the end game looms here for many resorts there’s more snow on the way. As of today there is a still a very good base at most Myoko resorts (see below) and the snow varies between corn, groomed and a bit slushy. The upside is that the slopes are empty and there are many discount ski tickets to be found.
Suginohara closes up this weekend but other resorts remain open for awhile yet. Here’s a glimpse at Suginohara from last week.
Update on official current Myoko resort snow depths at base: Akakan 330cm, Akakura Onsen 320cm, Ikenotaira Onsen 220cm, Tangram 210cm, Kurohime Kogen 190cm, Myoko Suginohara 210cm, Madarao Kogen 220cm, Seki Onsen 580cm.
