Excellent day up at Tenjin with enough snowfall overnight to completely refresh everything.

On-piste the recorded snowfall wasn't all that much but we were cutting tracks at least 20cm deep.

The weather stayed cool with either snow or clouds all day. The cat track was shut due to avalanche risk so tomorrow should be good too.

Next snowfall due on Monday and then some significant snow due on Wednesday and Thursday.

Definitely one of the best starts to March I've seen in years.
