Skies cleared yesterday from mid-morning but at the base this morning we have rain and its forecast to continue all day. Up top they are getting snow but its only accumulated 3cm according to the staff at Tenjin so likely rather moist stuff at this point. Temps up top are currently above zero but that is set to change and looks like a lot of snow coming in this evening through Friday with good weather forecast for Saturday. Will need to give things a thorough testing before the weekend.

Crank up the furnace, fuel up the blower and may the Pow be with you.

Lift passes at Hodaigi are being sold at a discount from today and there is still plenty of snow over there but not sure if they see much of this storm or not.
