The untracked snow from a few days ago is still excellent quality here and in the middle of a decent day on mountain. Tenjin's cat track to the bottom has opened as of yesterday. It's seven days after last season but with such a tiny snowpack there's a world of difference.

Forecast is snow showers tonight and looks more promising on Monday and Tuesday.

Good to see all lifts and courses at Norn now open...
