The pow is back, there isn't a great deal of it but its been 3 days at least of snow and its starting to build up nicely with very little sun to ruin the party. Overnight they recorded 15cm on mountain.

There is still a rain crust down there underneath but its quite soft and the riding yesterday was really good for mid-March.

Sun is out at my place this morning but looking up towards Tenjin it's still shrouded in cloud and the forecast has light snow and no sun on the horizon...

For the Tokyo desk jockeys, might be worth unpacking the pow sticks and saddling up this weekend!
