Myoko Kogen Snow Report 2nd February 2014
Last of the sunny days
Myoko Kogen Snow Report
A nice sunny day here in Myoko with some cloud. There is some chance of rain later in the day and possibly tomorrow. The temperatures are abnormally warm for this time of year. Down in Myoko City (Arai) they have a forecast top today of 13°! The Myoko weather forecast fortunately shows more snow returning on Tuesday through to Thursday. Today conditions will be akin to a pleasant springtime ski. Firm pistes softening as the day goes on. Alright for some gentle turns and a couple of beers in the sun afterwards.
The Sugi Park in Myoko Suginohara is open from today with 28 challenges to hit. Was a gorgeous sunrise this morning in Myoko Suginohara. Photo thanks to the Suginohara Facebook page
If you are to have any chance of anything slightly untracked you’ll have to do some hiking. This was above the lifts at Suginohara yesterday. Photo thanks to the Suginohara Facebook page
