Finally some decent snow.

15cm of light dry powder snow in the car park, 25cm up at Tenjindaira and it's still snowing. At times light and at times moderately but it looks set in for the day here and is supposed to clear this evening.

Forecast wise, tomorrow is expected to be clear, snow showers on Tuesday and on Wednesday there is both snow and rain forecast so let's hope its the former and not the latter. Thursday looks like decent snow coming in the evening but mountain forecasts more than a couple days out should not be taken too seriously.
