Really solid snowfall here yesterday.

Tenjin was shut due to wind though I suspect it had far more to do with potential avalanche danger.

Skied Hodaigi which had at least 50cm of very nice quality snow around the top lifts. Nice to see snow everywhere and our fire escape, in the lee of my building, has rails that still have 30cm on them despite not seeing any direct snowfall.

Good to see resorts mostly open and enjoying that fresh snowfall.

Weather is forecast to be clear today, there is a chance of some rain tomorrow afternoon which I sincerely hope we avoid. Snow is forecast again for Friday.
