Insanely good day at Tenjindaira yesterday. Knee deep fresh to kick things off and then it snowed all day. The snow was moderate to heavy, filling in tracks on piste and various parts of the backcountry were a meter deep. The ridges were insane as winds were minimal. Light, fluffy quality powder. Skies cleared last night before the snow kicked off again here today.

They are calling last night's snowfall 15cm but a report on actual riding conditions to come tomorrow. The cat track is being opened early these days and snow is coming in moderate to heavy at the base right now.

Other Minakami resorts aren't reporting anything like the same sort of snowfalls though will get a report from Hodaigi today. Forecast wise, looks like everywhere gets pounded with fresh this weekend, a 3m base on the way perhaps? Stay safe!
