Finally, a decent snowfall.

The windward side of my place was wind scoured but on the leeward side it's accumulated nicely. Plenty of wind came with it but a lot of holes will have been filled.

Conditions are excellent at Hodaigi (they are reporting 20cm of fresh snowfall) and it's varied from light to moderate snow all day. A little crusty in places but generally easy to ride.

We have a couple days of clear weather forecast and decent conditions to enjoy it.

There's some sun over at Norn right now actually...
