Nice little snowfall overnight which started around midnight and has been coming in heavily since.

March has seen some sporadic snowfalls which pushed the base up to a season high of 2.5m. The 10th Minakami Vibes has been cancelled for this coming weekend due to health concerns but the resort is still targeting a Golden Week close and they may not get there but with fresh snow like this coming regularly they're in with a chance.

With temps nice and low, today is the day to ride and it will be a shame if Tenjin remains shut due to wind. Tomorrow sees a return to more Spring like weather before things really heat up on Thursday and Friday. Get it if you can, while you can and most likely, tomorrow morning bright and early before things warm up.

Hodaigi are reporting 10cm of fresh snowfall.
