It's wet and windy in Minakami this morning. Down in the valley we woke to dripping on the roof and it wasn't snow melting. It is snow higher up though. The big feature of today is the wind though. Very strong up in Tenjin and it is going to disrupt lift operations with the possibility that they may only be running the one lift. Houdaigi is a little more sheltered but is likely to suffer as well.

It got quite warm yesterday and lower slopes softened up considerably. Light snow on the forecast for next week so with a bit of luck we are due a top up.

Norn - Dec 20
