Tenjin opened at noon yesterday and has been in excellent form since with clouds covering the mountain the whole time.

More snow is falling here this afternoon though its light so far.

Forecast is for a sizeable dump tonight and hopefully it arrives minus the wind though that is forecast too.

Tomorrow may well be a Hodaigi day though that place has been cranking whenever Tenjin is closed.
