Another 30cm up top at Tenjin after sublime conditions yesterday. A very surprisingly good day. Snow pack is sitting at 2.3m which is the high point of the season.

The cat track at Tenjin was closed yesterday but has been groomed this morning.

Forecast to clear tomorrow with warmer weather expected before a hot one Sunday.
