Varying between rain and sleet here, not what I was hoping for in the Christmas stocking.

It's cold enough though that up top at Tenjin they are probably getting average quality snow and the mountain forecast is for seven days of the white stuff.

Minakami town can expect snow starting tomorrow night and all through Wednesday which generally means big snowfalls up here. Today the weather is expected to clear shortly, lets hope so as I am out on a Christmas snowshoe shortly!

Hearing the week without snow up here has hit conditions at Hodaigi so the lower elevation resorts are very likely out of the question. Merry Christmas to all!
