Snow fell at the base of Tenjindaira last night but the quality wasn't great.

On the mountain though it was 15cm of light, dry, fast snow and a great refresh for the mountain.

Other resorts didn't really get anything of note.

Tomorrow is forecast to be fine with snow starting up Monday morning and the forecast for Monday night looks quite ominous to anyone responsible for moving it once it piles up. Safe riding and enjoy the good weather!
