Sunday's snow turned out to be average riding yesterday at Tenjindaira. Not a particularly great amount of it, ice cookies lurking in the morning, and soft but crusty on top of the ridges. The North faces above 1300m have up to 30cm of wind-packed pow on them but with an ice layer beneath I wasn't testing them.

Today the weather is absolutely beautiful and it looks like a warm one. The good news is tonight temps are set to cool and a potentially big snowfall arrive. If this season's weather patterns continue it will probably end up putting down most of the snow during the day tomorrow but the cold weather and snow looks set to hold through the limit of my forecast (Sunday).

Be that the case there will be some excellent riding to be had on the weekend and conditions at Hodaigi are still excellent on-piste while Tenjindaira just needs a refresh.
