Was sure we were going to dodge the rain yesterday and it was still at bay until around noon but during the afternoon it rained in the valleys and quite a bit. Heard from a guy who skinned up the cat track at Tenjin that it was wet snow up top. Warm though and the sort of conditions that get your gear soaked. Last night temps dipped and it may well have snowed but winds were strong.

The weather has settled now and it's clearing up. Temps are just above zero in the valley and just below at 1300m

A run around town saw a pretty thin snow pack at Okutone but the pistes are still in good shape. Hodaigi doing better and there is a still a nearly 2m base at Tenjin and over a meter in my backyard which is close to the base.

Small snow forecast tonight which can mean big snow here however in this case the base is potentially looking at some rain too. Unlikely to be the reset we need and there is no significant weather expected till Monday when the reset could well be on.

Some snow is forecast at Tenjin this evening.
