This morning at Myoko Suginohara

24 Hour Recap

Light snow in the early morning yesterday before some sleet just before lunch. Heavy snowflakes started falling after lunch and continued for much of the day giving us 30-40cm of fresh snow this morning.


Weather Outlook

Light to moderate snowfall today and we may see a bit of sun peeking through the clouds. Light to moderate snowfall Sunday and Monday which may continue Tuesday to Thursday, however it’s a bit hard to predict as there’s a lot of activity in the sea of Japan and we’re right on the edge of the cold front. Around 50cm of dry snow is expected over the next five days with light winds throughout.

A perfect day for every snow fan.


But now, a precautionary tale for today’s Myoko Snow Report

Two days ago a snowboarder at Myoko set off sidecountry through the trees and kept going till he ended up tumbling to the bottom of what was basically a cliff.

Search & rescue parties were sent out that evening but no sign was found. The whole of yesterday was spent searching for him and they got within 100 metres of where he was, but for whatever reason he didn’t respond to calls. This morning he was found by the helicopter and picked up in relatively good condition with no frostbite. It could’ve ended up much worse – both personally and financially.

So the message is this. Myoko off piste may be easily accessed but it is still dangerous. Be very cautious in what you do and if you want to be more adventurous carry the right equipment such as shovel, transceiver and probe. Have fun but be careful out there!

A big thanks to all the local volunteers who give up their time to help out, oft in dangerous conditions. You guys rock!
