Yesterday the winds became quite strong towards midday and continue to blow thoughout the night, transportain much of the newly fallen snow to sheltered areas.

This morning the winds calmed down considerably and are currently mild to moderate in most of Minakami. The snow has subsided after 3.5 days of precipitation which has brought over 1.2m of new snow to the valley level. Because of the winds transporting and compacting effect on the snow pack there is currently an average of around 100cm of snow at the valley level (up to 150cm in places) and over 200cm (up to 300cm in places) in the upper mountains and ski areas. This has set up a great base for the start of the season.

Tenjindaira opened all of its lifts today but has still not opened the return course under the ropeway. It is expected to open during the following week. All other areas have all lifts and runs now operating.

The outtlook for the comming week is for more snow to fall tonight through to the early hours of Monday morning, followed by 3 day of relatively stable weather with some sun appearing from Tuesday through to Thursday. Friday and next weekend looks like another 3 days + of snow.
