No snow was forecast for last night but we got some at the base of Mt Tanigawa anyway.

Minakami town actually saw heavier snow than us for a change. Up top it looks like we will be in for another reset.

It's been a lower snow year than average for us but in terms of being able to get out and ride good snow on a daily basis, it's been perfect.

Clear weather forecast for today and that's what I'm seeing this morning. Looks like things will be a bit warmer tomorrow and we are expecting a multi-day snowstorm to kick off tomorrow night.

The photo below is of my last lap yesterday and was taken on a North facing slope in the backcountry.
