Light snow falls at the valley level with around 5cm of snow on the ground, a current air temperature of -2 C and only a light breeze. The upper mountains have received between 15-25cm of new snow overnight but it is still not quite enough for resorts to Open. Tenjin was scheduled to open today but has postponed due to lack of snow base.

The snow is forecast to continue tonight through to tomorrow morning so Tenjin should get close to 40cm in total. Sundays onwards temps are expected to creep back up before the next cold front on the weekend.

It has been a warm start to the season for all of Japan. Hopefully Tenjin will have enough snow soon to open.

Valley 5cm
Upper Mountains 15-25cm

Planned opening dates:

Tenjindaira - Snow dependent
Houdaigi - December 13th
Norn Minakami - December 18th
White Valley- December 19th
