Bit nervous going back a a couple of weeks but looks like it will be a supremo start to the season this weekend. If it keeps going like this Smitty you'd better take a snorkel with you to Seki Onsen  ;)

Myoko really stepped it up a gear this arvo. 5cm last night, clear this morning, fat flakes just before lunch, back to ice rain (temps below zero though) then started snowing around 1 or so and hasn't stopped. Not the biggest flakes, but lots of them. My brother and I tried through the trees this morning up at Akakura Kanko and hit the crust too much for it to be fun. Tried it again this arvo and it was SO much better. About ankle deep, but enough so that we didn't hit the crust that often. Then moved over to Akakura Onsen and into the trees and again SO much better than it has been. Freshies everywhere. I just love how the Japanese people keep to the piste, left heaps of untouched for my brother and I all afternoon. Stayed till last lifts. Just had an onsen, stoked.

Really looking forward to tomorrow.

Also, snow quality just keeps improving and by about 3pm we had 1 to 2m dust trails behind us.

Sweet!  ;D

This is how Myoko should be, esp. amongst the trees. Pity you just copped a bad patch in an otherwise great season.  :'(

Hope you get lots of sweet pow for the rest of the trip.  :)
