Fine sunny weather this morning which is unfortunate from a snow perspective but beautiful all the same.

Things have clouded over now and its lightly snowing with brisk winds from the North and markedly lower temperatures. At this point there is no indication it will be a substantial snowfall but that remains to be seen.

The forecast ahead is cold and snowy though not much in terms of real size indicated aside from a moderate amount Thursday night.

Tenjin resort was quiet today but conditions are pretty good and only the cat track to the base is not open for business. Hodaigi still running the two lifts and needing substantially more snow, along with other resorts in the area.
