Blizzard conditions overnight and through the day here so far.

Official numbers are for 55cm of snow last night though in reality there was more as the bottom of the mountain received at least 40cm. Currently only the middle lift at the top of Tenjindaira is operational and I expect this will not change.

The heavy snow came with strong winds overnight though during the day this has abated to the point where now we just have the air thick with big snowflakes. At the base its accumulating at around 10cm per hour. Forecast to continue and intensify again during the evening.

The snow is light, super good quality so when things do open completely, tomorrow or Monday, expect excellent conditions!
