Great conditions yesterday, 30-40cm deep in the gullies at Tenjin and today we have about 25cm at the base and they are calling it 30cm up top but the base has risen by 35cm and its very likely there is a lot more in various parts of the resort. With shrinkage from the hot day yesterday, it's at least 40cm of new snow.
Conditions are great and the forecast for the next few days is massive snow.
