Blue skies, still strong winds up top, very sunny and the temperature is climbing here. Currently around zero degrees at the base of the mountain.

When the snow abated yesterday afternoon and despite the resort being closed, a walk half way up saw multiple signs of avalanches, some of which had covered the cat track at Tenjin with a meter of debris. The wind was extremely strong and riding the gondola today you could see substantial, natural avalanches on the upper Eastern and Southern faces off Tanigawadake and Nishikuro-one. The riding up top today has been super fast, only sinking around 10cm into the snow as all exposed faces have been massively wind packed.

There was a small amount of new snow at the base of the mountain overnight but up top it was either blown away or compressed into the snowpack. Word is the Tajirisawa course won't open today though all prepping and testing looks to be complete so we shall see and if not today, tomorrow looks promising.

Good weather forecast till tomorrow afternoon and then some moderate snow kicking in for 24 hrs.... Keep it comin!

For Hodaigi, heard there was a fresh meter of snow to ride in on Sunday but a little heavier than usual and the hooded quad to the top of the resort only opened briefly during the middle of the day before wind shut it down. Saw a few videos though and it looked like a great day over there.
