The forecast has been pretty good this time round and we are indeed experiencing light snow at the base of Tenjindaira.

Last night's snowfall was big but not as much as the previous evening. There is also substantially more sunlight refracting through the clouds that seem to have been enveloping us up here for an eternity.

Tenjin is just opening up now as of 12pm on Feb 8th so time is short. There is plenty of snow everywhere and Tenjin has just had 1m during the past two days. Hodaigi and Okutone have both got tons of snow too. Enjoy and stay safe
