Missed report yesterday but Tenjindaira Ski resort called it 15cm of fresh in the morning and its been snowing ever since. The resort was shut today due to 10m/s winds up top but the snow has been coming in large. Was over at Hodaigi and it was fantastic in the morning with about 30cm of fresh, it then snowed all day culminating in a virtual blizzard in the late afternoon. It's going to be great over there tomorrow.

Expect Tenjin to not open all lifts till around 11:30am as all this snow will need to settle on the steep terrain. Unless the wind has packed the snow down, I expect the base is going to be very healthy when we find out what the number is tomorrow morning.
