So much for the start of Spring, back to snow here and plenty of wind came with it overnight.

Tenjin has been shut all day causing headaches for the diggers who were looking to put the final touches on the banked slalom course. Looks like they have been able to get up there this afternoon so everything should be good to go tomorrow. It's still snowing here mid-afternoon but winds appear to have died off.

Just a word on overall conditions, the rain from a couple days ago caused a lot of slides down to the ground so there is significant avi debris in the gullies at Tenjin. For those planning the big drop, caution is the way forward.

The forecast is for clear weather this weekend, some rain on Sunday night which is forecast to turn to snow. If the forecast holds, Monday may well be a closure up on the mountain and Tuesday is likely to be the day. It's all the same to me though, looking forward to a very uncrowded, big snow day, early next week.
