Minakami saw heavy snow all yesterday and last night it was blown all over the place by very strong winds.

This morning was clear for an hour or two but it's snowing moderately here now.

Tenjin is shut again.

Hodaigi's top lifts aren't humming yet but I expect they will be very shortly, Okutone is the usual, all systems go and friends there for a night ski last night reported excellent conditions.
