Had a warmish evening in the mountain overnight and the sun is bright and melting stuff all over the place today at the base of Tenjindaira.

No fresh numbers provided by Tenjin today but there will be some shrinkage for sure.

This weather is forecast to continue through tomorrow afternoon after which light rain is expected for a couple of days and then some fresh snow for the weekend.

Heard just the beginner lifts running at Hodaigi but sounds like they're managing their snow well and I've heard good things about the state of the open pistes.

Okutone at lower elevations is probably doing it rather tough.
