I pay the weather forecasters a lot of money to understate what's coming and once again they've come through. The light snow forecast ended up being 40cm on the car park.

Not a big dump but certainly enough to get this Spring season right back on track.

It's still lightly snowing now but the sun is starting to poke through the clouds.

The cat track at Tenjin is shut all day due to avalanche risk and lifts up top are also quite restricted.

I will be up to poke around this afternoon but tomorrow is looking good.
