Twas the day before Christmas and Tenjindaira is loaded with plenty of fresh snow which is still falling.

Yesterday's rain seems a thing of the past with temps settling back into Wintery levels and the forecast is stocked with just what I was hoping for, looks like a big old dump coming from the 27th onwards.

Snow base up top was 1m at 8am and it's been falling consistently since so fingers crossed.
