Dumped overnight here.

Most of my car park had 40cm on it as winter cometh to Tenjin. 20cm in Minakami town, Tenjindaira ski resort got 70 reported centimetres which means in parts it'll be more.

Okutone Snow Park is also now part open.

Giddy up!

Please note that the snowfall numbers posted in this report will be observed from close to the base Tenjindaira Ropeway station - which is often much more than in the central town area of Minakami. More on that later.
