Snow is on at last with some solid accumulation over the past two nights.

Friday night's snow was on the wetter side while last night's is lovely dry pow which has accumulated nicely even down in the village.

At Hodaigi now and conditions are excellent. Strong winds are limiting operations at Tenjin to the small, middle lift only. We're getting the odd punchy gust here but generally winds are light.

The 53cm of snowfall recorded at Tenjin base in this report is comprised of 28cm from yesterday and 25cm this morning.
