Snowed all day yesterday on the mountain though not much at the base.

The peak of Tanigawadake was whited out all yesterday and for patches on Thursday too. I was up there both days and visibility was about 20m at best. Today things have cleared though the forecast is still for a significant snow fall this evening and snow looks set to continue for most of the week.

Hodaigi opened up some of their top lifts yesterday and a crew were over there and had a good time.
