First Myoko Snow Report of the season – 13 November 2013

Welcome to the first Myoko Snow Report of 2013/14. The snow has started falling here a few days earlier than last year which hopefully bodes for a good season to come. Many long term forecasts also seem to point in that direction.

Current Temperature: 2° at 11.00am (at The Heart of Japan office in Myokokogen)

Current Weather: Cloud, light fluffy snow falling

Current Visibility: Not much on the mountain!

Here’s a video that we took from the office this morning. The snowfall has been fairly constant over the last 48 hours. It will ease off today or tomorrow and we might very well get complete melt. At least that will give us time to get our snowblower sorted before the real start to the season. 🙂
