Continues to snow here right throughout Minakami, super light and dry but not bonding well at all. Tenjin has had more than 50cm in the past 24 hours but is closed today due to strong winds and no doubt avalanche risk.

Late yesterday afternoon the upper 15cm was cracking and sliding from the top of shoots and there has been plenty of snow since then. Wager we don't see the mountain open till Monday or Tuesday with snowfall forecast to intensify and continue.

Conditions are good at Houdaigi, far less wind and constant snowfall.
