Your faithful scribe had mostly lost hope in the season from a backcountry perspective but a change may well be afoot. It snowed last night for a while at the base of Tenjin, adding to the 15cm which had accumulated on parts of the piste as of yesterday, temps are nice and cold and its snowing again this morning, at a moderate level on a normal year but heavy for this year.

Yesterday I took a run at an Easterly line down in to the major run out for backcountry riding, Nishikurosawa. The base of the gully is now filled in to the point where I could ride all the way to within 50m of the cat track (exit). There was a little sluff debris in places at the base of the gully but nothing major. Bushes are still blocking a lot of the usual backcountry lines but there are plenty that can be ridden all the same and snow is forecast for this afternoon and this evening! In the interests of an accurate report, I will explore more today!
