Cloudy weather with patches of sun here this morning and very calm with no fresh snow for a change. Temp inversion in effect, cold early in the valley and measured as slightly warmer up top but looks like it could warm up from here and snow is coming off the roof. At Tenjindaira the base has settled to the tune of 10% and they're just running the top lift but hey, its early season and there is plenty of snow.

Hodaigi's site shows a base of 50cm and is set to open Saturday and Okutone will be hosting ladies day tomorrow.

Rain forecast for tonight so lets hope the weather people have it very wrong on that front.

The forecast thereafter is snow for the week, particularly at the top of the resort where its forecast to be quite cold too.

Official snow depths:

110cm Tenjin
50cm Hodaigi
50cm Okutone
