Snow coming in hard from the North here at the moment. Good-sized flakes to add to yesterday's fall. Apparently there is around 10-15cm of fresh on top of crust up top this morning though that should grow quickly if this weather keeps up.

Tenjin has closed their cat track for the year which is unfortunate though it was getting pretty patchy at the base over the past few days. Any backcountry will need to be done with one-way lifts henceforth.

They are also digging out the bowl for Minakami Vibes on Apr 2nd which means the two steep pistes either side of the Toge lift are out of action as they are pilfering snow in those spots. The rest is business as usual.

Checked Hodaigi recently and they will close some of the upper lifts after this weekend though conditions were excellent on Tuesday with plenty of soft Spring corn.
