Great snow here again today.

Things cleared briefly last night but we woke up to another 25cm of fresh at the base of Tenjindaira. They are reporting the same number up top.

All these recent snowfalls have been without any significant wind and the only negative is that other Minakami resorts just don't seem to be getting it.

Forecast is for Snowmageddon this weekend with strong winds too. If the snow comes without the wind, as its been doing all week, it will be a cracker.
