Myoko Kogen Snow Report 4 January 2014

More fresh snow overnight and more all day today.

It started about 3 am this morning and hasn’t let up since. Within the last hour the wind and snowfall has picked up with the snowfall predicted for the rest of today on tonight. Higher up on Suginohara this afternoon the clouds have started to clear a bit (see photo below). Tomorrow is looking very promising as an all out powder day 🙂
