Some snow overnight, one inch down at my place and 5cm on the mountain.

Winds are hectic up top at Tenjin and they have the Takakura and Toge lifts shut for now but the cat track is open so not a bad day for some hot laps.

Forecast is still for snow right through Sunday night and its very lightly snowing outside right now with moderate winds from the North down in the valley.
