A beautiful day in Myoko; a bit of cloud hanging over some parts during the day, but great snow, sunny at the end of the day.... Winter is back, and with some sun, too!

Good snow over the past few days has raised snow pack depths again, which is great (more for later into the season). A little heavy in places off the groomed slopes, but that just makes you a better skier.

One note; the fresh snow sits on a pretty hard layer of snow, after some rain and sun earlier. Reports from very high up on south/southeast facing slopes were that snow stability is not good; lots of shooting cracks and actual small slides. It's a good time not to push the limits of your experience, or the snow's stability. Maybe stay low, don't ski too deep, and stay of south-facing slopes for awhile. I worry about you guys; charge the slopes, but be smart.

Tomorrow should be a perfect, sunny day!
