Bluebird here today and plenty of people getting at it for the last weekend of February.

High expectations for the backcountry at Tenjin today but the fresh, featureless powder was covering up icy debris and we are in need of a reset. Looks like some snow up top this evening and tomorrow night so hopefully its enough. Next significant dump not forecast till Thursday.

Hearing Hodaigi was in really good shape today and the weather should be good tomorrow too.
