Once again it's super cold, -13C out there at 7am this morning.

No fresh snow at the base of Tenjindaira which for those who can't read between the lines, means dust on crust at best in the ungroomed spots and a hard, fast piste. I have a confession, my snow blower is actually a snow making machine in disguise and for years I've produced snow during the night here at Tenjin and just cleaned it all up in the morning.

We do have some snow forecast for this evening and my benchmark is showing a green light - the forecast at Tenjin is confirmed by the one for Minakami town.

We could really use the reset.
