The snow is lightly falling at the valley level, although the sun is still shining in lower Minakami. This means that Tenjin should receive a decent dump but many of the other fields will only get a sprinkling. It now looks like the snow will hit harder from midnight and continue throughout tomorrow.

The outlook for the weekend remains the same, with snow expected on Saturday and a sunny fine day on Sunday.

Backcountry
The strong winds of recently have been moving large amounts of snow and also creating wind slab layers. Compression tests yesterday revealed an easy (CT2 SC) layer at 15cm (N 1950m). Listen carefully for the "wooomf" sound when accessing the bc, this is the sound of the layer collapsing under feet, and a good sign to turn around. The new snow forecast in the next few days on top of this weak layer is likely to cause slides, natural or human triggered. Caution is advised!

Hazard:

Above tree line: Considerable

Tree line: Considerable

Below tree line: Moderate
