Plenty of snow and wind yesterday and we had a solid 30cm of the white stuff at the base of Tenjindaira. Little higher water content than we usually get.

The weather cleared overnight and it was blue this morning but at noon here it's just starting to snow again. Forecast is for days of snow including what looks like some heavy falls over the next couple of days.

Tenjin Ski resort reported 20cm and was closed due to strong wind yesterday so some of the early snow must have blown off.
