This morning's snow fall amounted to 10cm and it wasn't of the quality we usually get around here. Relatively wettish snow and winds weren't too strong overnight but this morning have been gusting heavily. From my place you can hear it roaring over ridges in the Tanigawa range or down the valley every so often.

The plan was to open the Tajirisawa A course to the bottom today at noon but that is probably not going to happen and right now only the middle lift is running at Tenjin. Hopefully these winds die off and in the event they do, it'll likely be quite good up top. In the end the snow fall continues along with strong winds, tomorrow morning could be excellent.

The forecast is for some clouds but generally clear weather with temps around -4C up top.
