Blue skies, light wind, meters of fresh snow accumulated and with the wind last night the snow should be a little wind packed on the ridges and pretty fast as opposed yesterday when their were Gofers popping their heads out above chest deep snow on resort.

Tenjin opened yesterday and in a timely manner with the top lifts running by 10am. The exception the far left one which was closed for wind.

Hodaigi also opened their top lifts. Conditions were excellent with easily a meter of soft fresh snow in many places.

I took a compilation of photos of people getting ready to dig their way out.
