Quick recap of the past few days.

No fresh yesterday or this morning and the wind had really hammered things on piste at Tenjin when it opened yesterday.

Probably the most crowded I've seen it all season and despite the average conditions on resort, snow in the trees was in far better shape.

Still, the town could use with a reset and it looks like that is coming in. After one and a half days of blue skies, the snow has just started falling here this afternoon. The forecast is that it comes with strong winds but they get things right about 50% of the time so whatever...
