Snow prayers were definitely answered overnight.

The snow started falling yesterday afternoon in the valley and has been pretty much non-stop since. It has added up to a nice dump for all of the resorts in Minakami and area. Houdaigi have a 50cm base for opening day this morning and Tenjin are at 120cm. Other resorts should have a decent base now to think about opening.

It is cold out and more snow is on the way so it is a pretty promising start for Minakami though it managed to go right down to the wire. Look to the end of the coming week for more potantial heavy snowfalls.
