Stunning blue skies this morning in Minakami. Enjoy it while you can as the cloud is due to come in at some point today. It could bring rain down low but the forecast promises us it will turn to snow by tomorrow and snow on and off for the rest of the week - fingers crossed for that.

Bit grim yesterday with rain on the lower slopes and some wet snow flurries up high. After a groom this morning the slopes are looking good but could be a bit soft and some lower slopes are skowing some brown patches.
