Plenty of snow yesterday and howling winds but Tenjin opened as they were prepping the banked slalom course for the weekends racing.

The piste was constantly refreshed which was cool but there is a punchy ice layer underneath everything and the bare patches are hard work.

Today's blue skies and warmer temps should get to work softening things up and the banked slalom course will be around for a while.

Looks like more snow on the way Tuesday through Thursday.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
PLEASE NOTE
There will be a break in the Minakami updates until further notice - in the meantime please keep an eye on the weather forecast page. Thank you.
