Snow has come in hard here today with Tenjin closed due to strong winds.

A hike up the cat track saw snow anywhere between 20-40cm deep and what is there is getting packed in by the strong winds which are gale force at the top of the lifts.

This weather is forecast to continue through tonight before a day of lighter snow tomorrow and potentially some very good riding.
