Volatile day on the weather front here. The base at Tenjindaira was cold over night, -6C at 8am before spiking to +3C at around 10:30am. The sky was clear and blue but the late morning saw clouds roll in and this afternoon it started to snow heavily. Winds are currently fine at the base but audibly powerful up top where it is no doubt blowing a gale.

The forecast is calling for heavy snow tonight and for strong winds to persist all day tomorrow. That sort of talk can make a ski bum want to stay curled up in bed but forecasts have been so unreliable this year, a punter would be taking a punt on the fluffy stuff with Hodaigi as a backup in case they can't open at Tenjin.

Regardless of when, there is a really great powder day in the works up here.
