Yesterday saw light snow during the morning above 900m. This intensified to moderate snow during the afternoon but at the very bottom of the resort it fell as rain unfortunately. We did get a little snow here at the base of Mt Tanigawa overnight but it was negligible. Today was clear but winds were pretty strong. The resort was not in good shape but up around the peak of Mt Tanigawa there was fresh snow. It's forecast to stay relatively clear till Monday when it looks like we have a multi-day storm on the way. May it come and bring lots of snow. The forecast for 1000m and above looks good, still looks questionable at the base of the mountain so we'll see.
