Lots of snow the night before last and strong winds all day yesterday at higher elevations meant only the middle lift was open at Tenjin. Hodaigi was really good apparently. The weather cleared from 3pm, cold night last night but forecast is for things to warm during the day. The backcountry will be closed all day at Tenjin today with a policeman manning the gate due to official activities in the backcountry.

The weather looks to be turning on us here with light rain this evening and freezing levels to stay around 2000m until Sunday night when the next snow is expected.

Monday looking like a big snowfall, though that's translated to about 40cm on my car park this Winter instead of double that or more on a normal season. Remember this is close to Tenjin base.

Good to see most of Okutone now open...

Snowfall recorded in this report is from yesterday; none overnight last night.
