Great start to the morning with a couple of awesome runs at Tenjin after their closure yesterday. The snow was soft and really good until things warmed up and it rained later in the morning.

The mountain was a write off by noon as the rain continued till early evening, Its currently snowing and is forecast to be a big one. Things are cooling right off too so tomorrow should be really good.

Probably Hodaigi or Okutone the best picks in the area.
