It snowed a lot here over the past 24 hours. I cleared 15cm from my car park yesterday afternoon and another 45cm this morning. Had a day off from riding yesterday but the word was that the 10cm that was recorded up on Tenjin during the morning, provided a full reset. Then it snowed heavily all day. Last runs were apparently the best of the day.

It's still snowing here at nearly 11am this morning but lightly and the sun is poking out from between clouds down in the valley. Not sure tenjin will open their cat track today. They have recorded 45cm up top but they measure from the least snowy place and it will be at least 1m up on the ridges. Snow showers are forecast all day here and Monday and Tuesday are set to be blue skies.

Potential for some rain Tuesday evening. Lets hope we dodge that bullet. It's been lurking on the forecast for a while but given it's 2 days out now, there is a chance it's really coming.
