Late report as I needed to make a full recon of the mountain in order to do this justice.

There was a tiny bit of precip at the base last night but anywhere up to 10cm in the gullies around Tenjin this morning. The ridges are icy but everything else is soft and the riding was much better than expected.

More importantly, it's just started snowing heavily here as of around 3:45pm and if it keeps up we will score a good snowfall tonight.

The snow forecast going forward is next level. Expect a base of around 4m here by the time the week is out. Tomorrow could actually be the day though as less is sometimes more at Tenjin and I'd be surprised if there isn't 30cm at least up top.
