The snow fell lightly for a change here and Tenjin opened up at noon today.

Conditions were excellent and heard the same from those who skied Hodaigi. The base is now well over 4m and the last thing we need is more snow but its still falling this evening at a rate that will see the mountain well and truly refreshed by morning.

Also high expectations that things get going earlier tomorrow and the backcountry for which we are most known, should be quite stable with the biggest snowfalls having had time to settle.

Forecast is for smaller snowfalls over the coming few days which is just what we need.
