Excellent morning at Tenjin, the run to the bottom opened early and the snow was in great shape after yesterday's closure and a very cold night.

The blue skies unfortunately warmed things quickly and by the afternoon the transformation to stickiness had begun.

Tomorrow morning should still be good and the forecast for tomorrow night is small snow up top and small rain down the bottom. Let's hope they have underestimated things!

The next largish snowfall is forecast for Wednesday.
