Great weekend on the mountain at Tenjin and the Minakami Vibes bowl will be in fine fettle for weeks to come. It's a huge one, looks very robust and it's about as close to riding a wave as you can get. Photos below.

Clear weather prevailed all weekend and the snow was soft and forgiving.

Overnight we had light rain here at the base of Tenjin but weather has cleared this morning. The peak was still shrouded in cloud about an hour ago and it was 9C at 9am this morning. I wouldn't go near that bowl without soft snow which should be around henceforth.

Weather forecast is for clear weather tomorrow followed by potential light rain Wed and Thur.

One slight downer, the course to the bottom is closed as of today. It was actually in pretty good shape yesterday and there goes our best leg burner.
