It rained solidly during the night, further hammering the depleted snow pack and setting the rivers off.

Today the weather has been clear with cool winds down the valley.

Tenjin have closed their cat track to the bottom today but we have snow coming this evening and tomorrow which should hopefully see that be viable for sometime yet.

All in all, we need the coming snowfall to be a good one.
