Yesterday was quite fun at Tenjin after the closure the previous day. There was a bit over 10cm pow on piste and everyone was pretty stoked to be skiing some halfway decent snow (by this season's standards). Last night was clear, this morning is cold and the weather looks perfect. I'll be taking myself up the peak of Mt Tanigawa to find a bit more of that elusive snow.

Forecast doesn't look great but some snow expected tonight, a bit more tomorrow night and the day after... we can only hope the spigots open up soon.
