Light snow fell for spells yesterday brining around 5cm to the valley in Minakami. Tenjindaira received a good dump of around 30cm but a lot of the snow in exposed areas was carried away by the winds.

Today the sky is overcast with a moderate wind that is expected to ease during the day. Tomorrow there may be strong winds in the morning, once again easing in the afternoon.

Backcountry
There has been a lot of new snow fall and a lot of wind transportation of snow in the last 8 days. This has loaded South faces with between 70cm - 120cm of new snow, much of which has not settled (because of cold temperatures). Compression tests yesterday on a South face (1950m)revealed some easy results in the upper snow pack down as deep as 70cm. This may result in some loose snow avalanches in the next few days on steeper terrain. Lower gradient terrain would be a good option if it wasn't so deep out there!
