Snow is here again this morning to the tune of 20cm at the base of Tenjin, likely at least 30cm up top. After yesterday's clear weather during the day it is good to see. Down in the town it is right on zero degrees and a little colder up the mountain. The snow is forecast to clear sometime this morning with nothing new expected till Sunday night. Seeing some colder temperatures on the forecast and more snow ahead so fingers crossed. The Tajirisawa lift was closed at Tenjin yesterday due to a mechanical issue but its expected to be running again today. Hearing the plan is to open the main Toge faces today which will be sweet if it happens.

Had a group over at Hodaigi yesterday and saw the videos from a ski lesson. Hodaigi have done an excellent job and the beginner pistes look great. The top lifts don't have enough snow to operate but if you're beginners looking for the perfect learning piste, Hodaigi have it ready to go. Not sure how crowds will be this weekend but through the week its not been crowded at all.
