5cm of fresh snow from last night at the valley level with 20cm in the upper mountains. Houdaigi is now open but only has 1 lift operating, more lift will open depending on snow conditions.

The forecast is showing some decent snow to start from this afternoon, continuing through to Monday. This storm should bring 20-40cm to most areas of Minakami setting up the lower ski areas with a good base.

The remainder of this week looks like reasonably low temperatures with patches of snow, this should slowly build the snow pack, with Tenjin expected to havea 1.2m+ base by the end of this week.

---

Tenjindaira - all lifts open, return course closed

Planned opening dates:

Norn - Dec 19
