And so the Tenjin backcountry season begins.

Yesterday the mountain was pounded with snow and overnight we had a very solid dump. The wind meant at the base, accumulation varied between 20cm and 50cm and the ropeway is reporting 35cm which coincidentally is the increase in the snow base.

Who knows how much actually fell but its accumulating now to the tune of 2 inches per hour at the base. Big, fat, light, fluffy pow!

Minakami Now ski lift operation notes:

Tenjin currently in the process of sorting out all this snow, I expect we see them open at some point today. Hodaigi is running the beginner lifts and a couple of the upper lifts and expect things may open more there today.
