Snow kept dumping yesterday and by 1pm we'd received another 40cm. Tenjin remained shut all day and Hodaigi were unable to open their top lifts so the Minakami fields will be in fine shape this morning.

The skies are clear, the winds are non-existent and as of yesterday morning the snow base at Tenjin had tipped the scales at over 2m so will see what the final count is shortly. It remains nice and cold here today.

More snow tonight and throughout the weekend!
