Still haven't been up the mountain as its still not open so snowfall figures are based on the Tenjin resort numbers. Understated as I'm recording snowfall as the increase in the base only.

Looks like plenty of fresh overnight as the base level is up +20cm despite no snow yesterday. Rain fell at the bottom of the resort and continues now with the snow kicking in from around 850m. Winds are brisk,cold and from the North with the temp currently -0.5C up top.

Expecting an imminent open, which at this point is over 1 month late. Forecast presently is for light snow on the 25th, turning heavy on the 26th and 27th.
