Today saw 80cm of fresh at Tenjindaira, that was measured in the morning and it has snowed relentlessly ever since. They were doing their best to open by noon but apparently they were digging out lifts and it was piling back in so quickly the situation was untenable. Anyway, hit Hodaigi and it was all time. I was sinking in 1m down to the same boot pack I had put in the previous day.

My guess is Tenjin opens tomorrow between 10am and noon though I doubt they will risk opening the cat track to the bottom. The weather is forecast to be clear and the snow has subsided late this evening though its still coming in.
