Myoko Now!

Sunday 20th April 2008, 9:13am
Weather conditions: Cloudy
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Slight winds under cloudy skies here at Myoko. But these are warm spring winds and the melting is fast. Despite the 3+ metres of snow at Seki, the grass is getting green in the village, and the village ojisans are out practicing their golf swings, waiting for the snow to fully melt.

Some bald spots at the bottom of Akakura, but it's open top to bottom still. Some weaving skills are needed, but overall, the bald spots are easy to dodge.

Seki's at 315cm, so no bald spots there, and it remains the pick of the day for snowboarders. I'd have to recommend Akakura Kanko for skiiers as it still has nice long runs.

Your Myoko area levels for today:
110cm (Akakura Kanko Resort);
100cm (Akakura Onsen);
315cm (Seki Onsen)

Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Sunny
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
A fine sunny day is expected today. Temperatures will reach up to 12 degrees on the mountain and 18 degrees in the village. Winds are very light and the visibility is excellent.
The best snow conditions will be before 12pm as it will be getting very slushy in the afternoon.
The gondola is open again today making more of the mountain accessible.
It would be a good idea to remember to put on some sunscreen.
