The snow is back.

Started at about 1am last night according to friends who were returning from the Nozawa fire festival. Fortunately we didn't get any of the rain that hit elsewhere, just light, dry snow.

This morning at about 6am there was 10cm on the car park and we are now up to at least 15cm and it's snowing in earnest. Winds are light down here at my place but you can hear strong gusts just above and the Takakura lift at Tenjin is shut due to wind. Everything else including the cat track is open and by the afternoon, conditions are likely to be very good up there though my guess is unstable on steeps in the backcountry.
