Snow and loads of it over here. Clear the stuff away and its piled up 10cm by the time I get back to it. Going to take a wild stab in the dark and assume Tenjin is shut due to strong wind. There are blizzard-like, sustained gusts of wind wailing through my car park regularly.

Spoke to Hodaigi on the phone and its windy up top there too so whether they can open their top lifts remains to be seen though they have been champs this season and things are usually in full swing by 10:30am-11am. Their reported 30cm at the base will mean 70-80cm at the top of their hooded quad. Okutone getting this too with 4m/s winds so not for the faint hearted out there this morning.

The forecast is for more of the same over the next 24 hours.
