Tiny dusting at the base of Tenjin last night and looks like they got the same up top. Weather here is overcast and the forecast expects snow to start falling this afternoon. Fingers crossed for a reasonable amount as we could use it. Temperatures a little above zero here at 675m above sea level at 10am.

The coming week looks very promising and hoping for not too much snow. All gullies are filled, all streams are covered, there are a few pesky glide cracks on steep terrain but daily falls of 30cm would be ideal to keep things safe and accessible with good snow. Have a feeling it could be a lot more though given the forecast.
