Filthy weather here today with extremely strong winds. The snow at the base of Tenjindaira is the same stuff we had a few days ago. Feels light and fluffy and great to ski but despite the lightness there is a significant water content to it and it was very prone to avalanche a few days ago. It also settled extremely quickly too though so tomorrow could be a good one.

Was over at Hodaigi where they have a healthy 25cm and lighter winds. It's all systems go there and Okutone is looking great too.

Forecast is for light snow tomorrow and possibly the day to get Tenjin if you're able. Saturday night they are forecasting heavy snow which is actually the last thing we need. That said, the longer range forecast is for smaller dumps all next week which is the perfect scenario for this area.
