Yesterday's conditions were really good, enough snow to refresh the whole mountain at Tenjindaira though no fresh this morning unfortunately.

Forecast is calling for snowfall tonight though tomorrow and then another storm cycle to kick in Sunday evening and continue through at least Wednesday.

Its cold, overcast and generally, pretty great here in Minakami at the moment and there is snow right throughout the village. La Nina looks like she has and is coming through!
