All change again!

This morning 20-30cm of fresh snowfall across the mountain with snow still falling. Great news. 16cm is what my measuring stick says this morning though with the wind it's more and less in different places. But I think that's a decent representation of the overnight haul.

Less great is the fact that strong winds are going to preventing lifts from opening as normal at Madarao Kogen, so the day is starting off on hold. It looks like Tangram is going to be opening.

The forecast is for more snow and strong winds through the day today, so there is a chance that Madarao won't open.

As you can see on the forecast below, the snow should pass us by tomorrow with more snow forecast for the weekend.

Tomorrow should be great!
