Minakami Now!

Sunday 21st September 2008, 13:17pm
Weather conditions: Overcast
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Things are starting to cool off in Minakami as typhoon seasons set in, with temperatures ranging from 30 to 16 deg C over the last week. In general most typhoons do not hit the Minakami area with the majority being centered off the two coasts; Pacific or Japan Sea.

The long range forecast for September to November is for higher than average temperatures which is good news for outdoor enthusiasts. This could mean a later than usual Kouyou season (changing of colour of leaves). Typically the upper mountains start changing colour around early October with the peak being from mid to late October. This brings a lot of weekend traffic to the Minakami area causing mini traffic jams, especially on Sunday evening.

It is a good time of the season to get out and check out backcountry routes before the snow hits. It is good to know what sort of ground cover is under the snow you will be riding on and other terrain features of access routes and riding area.
