Yesterday saw extremely strong winds and some snow accumulated but nothing impressive by around 9pm. At some point overnight the snow came in really heavily and this looks like our biggest dump of the season.

The snow is dry but wind pressed and 50cm on the roads and most of my car park. Winds are still howling down the valley at points and I took a look at the Tenjin webcam and its blowing a gale up top.

They recorded 60cm but staff mentioned over waist deep when referring to what's going on up there.

Today marks a new high for the season's snow base generally.

The ropeway is completely shut for now and likely for the remainder of the day. Tomorrow should be all time.

Okutone Snow Park are reporting 20cm at their base car park.

Hodaigi are reporting 30cm.
