More snow on and off yesterday so it'll be another good morning up at Tenjin with some fresh lines to be had by the early bird. Still two lifts open up there at the moment. Light snow falling again this morning and it should be another day of snow showers with the occasional glimpse of blue skies.

The forecast has us down for a sunny day tomorrow so it could be one of the great days with fresh snow and sunshine. At the moment Saturday looks a bit iffy, precipitation due but it may be rain at lower altitudes - we'll have to wait and see.

Great conditions today in Minakami as the fantastic start to the season continues.
