Snow overnight and things cleared early this morning but weather is already pushing its way back in to the Tanigawa valley.

We have snow forecast through Thursday morning and then a potential break in the weather before more from Saturday night.

Please note that the snowfall numbers posted in this report will be observed from close to the base Tenjindaira Ropeway station - which is often much more than in the central town area of Minakami. More on that later.
