Light snow once again overnight and the usually reliable weather forecasts have been off the mark for a few days now. Yesterday was clear throughout and right through till the early hours of this morning.

Snow showers forecast for today and its overcast and windy but really no telling what this weather does today. Still forecasting some decent snow Sunday night and then onwards through Wednesday. Most of the lines from 1500m look ride-able, just the run outs that need filling in and I wager this storm gets that done.

Okutone is now part open and Hodaigi remains open as well, but other resorts remain closed... we all wait for the snow!
