After an overcast and slightly warmer day yesterday the high winds hit Minakami late last night and are still blowing strong this morning. The wind is expected to last until early tomorrow morning. This has caused many of the lifts at higher ski areas to close for the day; Tenjindaira, Houdaigi, Minakami Kogen, Kawaba.

The snow also hit late last night with 30cm of fresh at the valley level this morning. It continues to fall today and is expected to last until tomorrow morning, bringing an expected 60cm of fresh in total.

Backcountry Advisory
Warmer temperatures yesterday aided in settling of the snow pack, with packed powder conditions around Minakami and no evidence of any avalanche activity. The snow and high winds over the next 2 days are likely to load lee slopes once again and produce sluffs on steeper terrain.


Avalanche Hazard:
Alpine: Considerable
Tree Line: Moderate
Below Tree line: Moderate
