Woke up this morning to more snow! Been falling constantly and at lower elevations the accumulation is small but they have a fresh 15cm at the top of Tenjin.

Forecast is actually for some clear weather over the next few days which will be nice if it eventuates as it feels like its been snowing forever!

Hodaigi opens today with a small 40cm base but photos on their site look good and will get a first hand account of the situation asap.
