Weather has been up and down all week in the mountains, some rain, some warm days and some cool ones too.

It's simply horrible here this morning. Wind roaring down the valley and knocking over pot plants. There has been the odd sprinkle of rain, graupel and even a little of what feels like snow and its freezing outside!

Looks like it is actually snowing up on the mountain with 1cm reported. Pity the diggers who are 700m up the mountain putting the finishing touches on the Minakami Vibes bowl at Tenjin this morning. There is drone footage of what they've constructed and it looks unbelievable and it can be seen on a temporary facebook account here.

Can't seem to get a recent photo yet unfortunately but Minakami Vibes is tomorrow and Sunday at Tenjindaira, the last resort open in the area. Weather looks overcast tomorrow but some rain is forecast for Sunday so tomorrow is really the day. Elementary school kids have been free on the mountain all month but they will be Y2000 tomorrow and Sunday due to the event.

Tenjin are still planning to run through May 6th and they probably have the snow to do it.
