Myoko Now!

Monday 28th April 2008, 9:23am
Weather conditions: Cloudy gradually clearing
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Cloudy skies with slight warm winds in Myoko. Seki and Akakura are ready for Golden Week, but area bookings are low this year. This bodes well for those who hate crowds, as the runs should be sparse. The runs are slushy near the bottom and in the board parks, but still quite navigable.

Seki stays open till the 18th.

Your Myoko area levels for today:
40cm (Akakura Kanko Resort);
30cm (Akakura Onsen);
180cm (Seki Onsen)

It is another overcast day here in Niseko with rain in the village and light snow above the 1000metre level. Strong gusts of wind have again forced the closure of the top lift, the King#4.
