Snow started to fall mid-morning yesterday and hasn't stopped but unlike the previous snowfalls, this one came with the wind.

At the base of Tenjin the new snow packed down to about 25cm which is what Tenjin resort has reported up top too.

It's still coming down but minus the wind and the forecast is this snow to continue through tomorrow night.

If I was a betting man I'd be laying money on this being a big snow year.
