Nice, light, dry Pow all over the place here today and it came with minimal wind for most of the storm.

50cm of fresh measured up top at Tenjin but looks like the warmish weather over the past couple of days caused some serious snow settling. The base up top is at 2m but I expect the rate of settlement will be a lot less henceforth.

Forecast is calling for a snow free afternoon, light snow this evening and tomorrow during the day. Then we have what looks like a fierce storm on Tuesday night and Wednesday which may well push the base over 3m.

Seriously good news for this time of year and I can confirm that the backcountry here around Mt Tanigawa is good to go. Was over at Hodaigi yesterday afternoon and conditions there were great. Nice and soft on their perfectly groomed pistes.
