Conditions were variable yesterday, great in the morning with plenty of fresh snow on piste.

In the afternoon the Southern aspects turned heavier due to a build up of humidity. It started snowing yesterday afternoon but it was relatively wet and that continued through about midnight.

Woke up this morning to 45cm on car park (Tenjin reported less up top). Cleared that and it's still snowing heavily and there's been an additional since the morning.

Roads are atrocious but I've been past Hodaigi and Okutone and there is loads of fresh snow on piste and barely anybody riding it.

The heavy snow is forecast to continue throughout the day before clear weather expected tomorrow.

Friday looks like some refreshing snowfalls, the weekend is looking like good weather.
