Super light snow kicked in at some point overnight and laid a couple of centimeters down in various spots but it was negligible. Today was generally clear with a light breeze, noteworthy as Tenjin opened their cat track to the bottom for the first time this season. I saw a piston bully on the back of a truck going up there with the big parts elsewhere the other day. I assume its been put back together and is now functional. Looks like we are on from here on when avalanche danger allows.

Late report today due to the damn universe and it's occasional propensity to pound on me at this time of year but there is a little snow forecast and its actually coming in somewhere between moderate and heavy. We've had 5cm in the past hour and a half and if this keeps it up, things could be quite fluffy tomorrow. I will base the observed snowfall on the morning measurement.
