Lots of snow falling here. It was snowing all day yesterday at higher elevations and by late afternoon the morning's tracks at Tenjin were resetting but at lower elevations, it only really intensified sometime during the night. Woke up to around 40cm on my car park and it's still falling here. After clearing it this morning it's piled back up to the tune of an additional 6-7cm.

Tenjin shut all day today due to wind but Hodaigi had their top lifts running in a timely manner and Minakami town is also getting the snow.

Forecast is for it to clear tomorrow morning before snowing again tomorrow night.

All looks well until the evening of the 12th when light rain is expected. On the evening of the 13th it looks like very warm temps and significant rainfall.
