5cm of fresh snow to report at the valley level this morning with the snow forecast to continue throughout the day and for all of tomorrow as well. This should bring around 30cm to the valley with up to 70cm expected at Tenjin by the end of this storm. Some fine conditions ahead!

The weekend looks like mainly overcast and cool weather which should keep the snow in good condition.

Backcountry:

The BC areas around Minakami have not had sufficient snow to fill in creeks as yet. At least another 2m of snow is required to make easy and safer exits. The new snow is settling on the hard rain effected layer which is likely to cause problems.
