They say closed in 2003 but it was way before then - around 1996 I believe. I spent a lot of summer 2003 in and around Myoko and the place was already a wreck then - overgrown and vandalised.

Here's a photo of one of the lodges from my rides around the area in 2003. This place had been thoroughly trashed.

Sorry to hear about such behaviour I didn’t think vandalism and lack of respect for other people’s property was part of the Japanese psyche.

Heard yesterday some people were so convinced that this season was on they bought Myoko season passes and had them posted to Australia. Non-refundable for those with second thoughts.

Had a conversation with someone at Madarao last night. They need to move some snow because the snow hanging off the roof is joining with the 5 metres + snow on the ground.

Just hoping both my places are ok. Nothing I can do about it so not going to worry. But Chalet Myoko cannot be worse than the year we bought it. Apart from losing the stupid attic windows out the back it survived a 28 metre season.

Waiting on some pics to share.

The snowdepth of Sekiyama (JMA's weather station at 350m asl in the region) has increased by 50cm within the past 10 hours.

Quite crazy to think that Myoko has had 819cm of snow at base level so far this season. In Contrast, Hakuba has had 343cm at base level.

I'm pretty sure that if you look at the records Myoko has consistently had much more snow than Hakuba for the last few seasons.

New tree runs opening this weekend at Cupid Valley.

Previously they've been quite strict about side country and off piste. The penny has finally dropped it seems, just like it did at Tangram a couple of years back.

The area off the single chair? That got regularly trashed when we was there a few years ago.

That’s a fun little bowl skiers left off the top lift.
