Myoko Now!

Sunday 6th April 2008, 8:29am
Weather conditions: SUNNY
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Another crystal clear morning, with views of Sado from Seki Onsen and views of Lake Nojiri from Suginohara. There are still 4.5 metres of snow at Seki Onsen to last until the 18th of May when it closes.
The Pick of the Day is Akakura, not only for the views, but to avoid the Suginohara crowds. But if weekends are all you've got, I'd recommend hitting them both with half day/half day visits. Despite the crowds, Suginohara's runs are quite wide.

Your Myoko area levels for today:
240cm (Akakura Kanko Resort);
230cm (Akakura Onsen);
125cm (Ikenotaira);
155cm on the bottom (Suginohara);
470cm (Seki Onsen);
125cm (Madarao Tangram Ski Circus);
135cm (Madarao Kogen);
215cm (Myoko Ski Park);

Once again, weather conditions are very similar this morning. The sun is out, it is mild and just a slight breeze. Very nice day to be out and about. The snow that we had in the week has now melted and dried up on the side of the roads and we are pretty much back to spring conditions.

More of the same again this morning! The sun is out and hardly a cloud to be seen. It's also pretty warm and already +6 degrees and forecast to rise to around 10 degrees this afternoon. All the gondolas are open and a few people out there spotted in t-shirts enjoying the spring weather and conditions. Great day to be out there.

It's looking like we have a week of warm weather lined up, and a mix of clear sunny weather, cloud with a bit of rain possibly thrown into the mix.

Today is the last of the season for the Asagai slope.   Read more ...

A warm morning this morning. Slushy snow, a quiet mountain and top to bottom good skiing. Cloud is covering Tokachidake, but the rest of the valley is clear. It really does feel like spring today, and the local markets have started again in town, and non-ski tourism is about to begin next week.   Read more ...
