The first snow to the valley level has hit! 15 cm of fresh snow on the ground in upper Minakami this morning with the upper mountains receiving up to 30cm. The sun has now come out (except for Tenjindaira area which is still snowing) so it looks like the white blanket will be short lived.

Temperatures are expected to warm up again slightly on Saturday and stay above zero for most of next week, however there is likely to be more snow above 1500m on Monday. This is setting up Tenjindaiara well for its scheduled start on December 6th.

The township of Minakami covers a large area (780 sq.km) and as such the temperatures and snowfall vary dramatically. During an average snow storm, the upper areas of Minakami from Yubiso towards Doai (Tenjinadaira) and Fujiwara (Houdaigi, Minakami Kogen)typically receive around twice as much snow as the lower Minakami areas (Norn). Central Minakami (Okutone, White Valley) are usually somewhere in between.
For this report data is taken from the Yubiso area in upper Minakami.
