    Really looking forward to my first trip to Myoko this year, mid Jan. May well purchase some new skis to celebrate too, the old pair have done their duty.

    Heading to Myoko for the first time in late January for four days before finishing off with three days in Buller-sur-Neige (Madarao). Have skied the latter before but never the former. It's my fourth year of doing a dad and daughter trip which is always good fun. Can't wait for the first solid snow to arrive on the webcams to get the stoke levels up! Will follow this thread with interest :)

    Some problems with the transport to the area because of the recent typhoon. Will keeps things updated if this looks like stretching into the season but I do doubt that.

    Good news! Shinkansen services to Joetsu Myoko will resume next Friday 25 October.
    Initially services will be less then regular with only 80% of rolling stock available. This will increase as more trains are returned to the system.
    The new schedule will be released Wed. 23 October.
