Missed my report yesterday as I was rather busy slaying all the snow that had accumulated at Tenjindaira over the previous 9 days. They had let the fresh sit for a while so it wasn't blower pow but it was soft, very fast and we were sinking in around 25cm so no complaints.

Everything has changed up top, there is a very healthy snow base in place and bushes are not much of a worry around the resort or in the backcountry.

Received more good reports from Hodaigi yesterday too.

After days of deep but slower conditions, there was still plenty of fresh around and things were a lot faster. Okutone is looking good these days too.

After the one day of beautiful weather, its puking snow again here now. Its supposed to clear tomorrow morning but we will see.
