Snow, plenty of it, all day yesterday, overnight and continuing now.

There has been plenty of wind around and I'm calling it 30cm but drifts on my car park were over 75cm so up on the mountain, there'll be plenty of snow and the base is up to 90cm.

Tomorrow looks like good weather and good conditions all round.

Snow is forecast for Mon- Wed and it's shaping up to be a good dump.

Hodaigi opened today, Tenjin opened their Takakura lift as far as I can tell. The intermediate course.

Okutone have announced that they will be open from tomorrow, 16th December.
