Great snow up at Tenjin yesterday. The Sunday crowds were dealing with super dry powder on an ice crust and wisely left most of the backcountry alone. By yesterday morning it had settled nicely and there were a lot of choice lines to pick off that were completely untracked. In terms of the weather forecast, it was supposed to heat up to well above zero on mountain and that fortunately didn't happen and by day end, the gullies were still pretty fast and fresh.

Today is once again forecast to be warm though I am taking their forecasts with a grain of salt for now.

There has also been a significant rain event looming on the forecast and that appears to have been downgraded with Minakami town expecting only a small amount of rain tomorrow evening. The mountain forecast is still for a hammering but I expect they're just late to the party with their models. Snow is forecast for tomorrow and Thursday evenings.
