We are having an unexpected and massive dump of snow on this Thursday afternoon in Myoko. Probably 40cm has fallen over the last hour or two, with some pretty strong winds also causing some drifting and poor visibility. The day started with some light snow, then a big wind from the top of the mountain (which totally obscured vision for about a minute) ushered in some serious snowfall. Great big flakes, and lots of them.

Tomorrow should be an outstanding powder day; the snowpack up in the hills looks pretty stable, although with this much snow falling the danger of sluffing should be kept in mind—stay out of narrow valleys! Be careful, but have fun.

The reports below are as of the first part of the day, so tomorrow should show some much higher figures.
