As prediceted it is colder today but pretty grim. Low grey cloud is obscuring the top of Tenjin though it looks as if there might have been a light dusting higher up last night.

Early this morning some light rain fell but it was trying to turn to snow at valley level at about 9am. It's now given up on both and the cloud is starting to lift slightly.

The lower temperatures last night have put the pistes back in to good condition after the bashing they took from the heat yesterday, and they are fast and grippy this morning. Yesterday's sun has also managed to melt all the snow on the roads, though slightly too late for the driver heading to Tenjin yesterday who managed to put his car through a fence and roll it down the bank onto a lower road, within sight of the lodge - a sobering reminder that even when the sun is out the roads can be tricky.
