Yesterday was sunny and warm throughout.

This morning, after a lengthy spell of warm, Spring weather, it's snowing at the mid and upper levels of Tenjin. No idea of the quality yet and its raining moderately at the base but the weather is forecast to intensify over the afternoon and by tomorrow morning plumb lows of -5C at the top of the resort.

The forecast going forward is for snow and minus temps up top, right through Sunday.

Hodaigi still has a 1m base and all courses open except one and Tenjin still has plenty of snow as does Minakami Kogen. The lower area of Okutone Snow Park is closed but the upper part of the resort is still open.

Could Winter be set to give it up one more time?
