Myoko Snow Report 25 February 2016: Current Conditions

Good to hear the snow blowers going again this morning! Yesterday’s snow continued overnight with another 15cm+ on the ground today. The wind looks like it’s dropped since yesterday and if the weather clears through the day as expected, it should be a great day up on the mountain.

Myoko Snow Report 28 January 2016: Another beautiful sunny day in Myoko

Myoko Snow Report 28 January 2016

Report by David Churchill/Myoko Snowsports 

Current Conditions

We have a sunny morning with light winds in Akakura today. The temperature is sitting at -5 degrees. We had plenty of sun yesterday so the runs will be a bit crunchy this morning.

24 Hour Recap

A beautiful day in Myoko yesterday with sunshine, light wind and warm temps for the whole day.

Weather Outlook

Sun today before some snow starts falling tonight. Temps will remain high, so we may get some wet snow down low in the village. The temperature should drop a few degrees tomorrow night when the wind comes around to the north and we should pick up 20-30cm of dry snow. Another 20-30cm of snow between Saturday and Monday will give us a nice top up.

Myoko Snow Report 26 January 2016

Fresh snow and sunny today.

Current Conditions

Sunny this morning with light winds and the temperature is at -7 degrees.

24 Hour Recap

We had a bit of light snow and fog yesterday morning with light winds and a bit of sun peeking through the clouds. By the afternoon the clouds had cleared giving us beautiful conditions. Clear skies overnight and into this morning.

Weather Outlook

Sunny, light winds and relatively warm for the next three days, although there’s quite a bit of moisture in the air a few kilometres offshore in the sea of Japan for the whole of this period so there’s a slight chance it could drift down onto us occasionally. Warm snow Friday, Saturday and Sunday and we could pick up a bit of sleet in the village.

Myoko Snow Report 11 January 2016

Report by David Churchill / Myoko Snowsports

Cold and snowing this morning.


Current Conditions
Moderate snow, poor visibility and the temperature is sitting around -3 degrees.

24 Hour Recap
We had a sunny morning yesterday with clear skies the night before so it was pretty icy first thing. It was partly cloudy through the day so it softened up nicely before more snow moved in last night. It’s been snowing pretty consistently all night and we’ve scored another 15-20cm so far.

Madarao snow report

Today’s Picks
Head to the groomers this morning for a bit of fresh powder on top of hard packed snow. Any un-groomed runs will still be a little too icy and moguly this morning and we really need a bit more fresh snow to fill them in.

Weather Outlook
Moderate snow should persist throughout the day into tomorrow morning and we’re expecting another 15-20cm from this. Partly cloudy Wednesday morning before another 20-30cm on Wednesday night into Friday. Temperatures will remain very cold (-6 to -2 degrees) and winds will be light though this period.

Report by David Churchill / Myoko Snowsports

Sunshine this morning and fresh snow before more snow tonight.

Current Conditions
A few clouds hanging around this morning but it’s mostly sunny with the temperature at -4 degrees.

24 Hour Recap
We had a snowy day yesterday with some ankle to knee deep powder around the mountain.

Today’s Picks
A cruise down Elegant for beginners, Panorama on the Onsen side for intermediate and advanced riders should head to Champion B for a steep groomed run.

Weather Outlook

A clear morning before another 30-40cm tonight and tomorrow. We’re then looking at more snow Wednesday, Thursday and Friday but totals are difficult to estimate at this stage. Winds will be light and the temperature will stay very cold over the next five days.

From tonight, the next week is looking really good for Myoko. We are finally returning to a normal winter airflow that should deliver low temperatures and high snowfall. Wednesday may see a little glitch in the system with the chance of some warmer air moving in from the west-south-west. But even if that plays out, things should sort themselves out on Thursday with next weekend looking like it’ll deliver on the snow front.

Unlike the systems since Christmas that have barely reached Myoko or been offset by warm westerly air, the pattern in the next week looks much more likely to maintain low temperatures and deliver the kind of snow we’d expect from mid January.

Report by David Churchill / Myoko Snowsports

Another 10-15cm of snow overnight in Myoko

Current Conditions:
Light snow, moderate visibility and the temperature was -4 degrees in the village this morning. The snow started in the early hours of the morning with 10-15cm on the ground by 7am. It’s still falling heavily so we can expect a bit more by lunchtime when things start to clear up. Unfortunately, it’s warming up outside and the snow is a little heavy in the village. It should be good up high this morning, so get out there and enjoy some fresh powder!

24 Hour Recap
We had a bit of sun in the morning yesterday before the clouds rolled in. It began snowing very late last night and it continued through the night.

Today’s Picks
Get up high and get amongst it. Head to Hotel A or Champion A for steep ungroomed runs and fresh powder this morning.

A couple of shots from this morning:

Weather Outlook
The light snow this morning is expected to continue and it should clear up by this evening. A clear morning tomorrow before another 30-40cm on Sunday night into Monday.
