Conditions were excellent yesterday, sinking in about 30-40cm and sweet blower pow combined with blue skies.

Snow started late yesterday afternoon and as has been the case this year of late, very little wind came with it down low. Up top I can hear the wind ripping over the ridges but the Tenjin ropeway is closed for now. They are reporting only 30cm up top so I am guessing wind has been blowing solidly up top for a while.

The snow has largely stopped and its a case of wait and see for Tenjin or hit Hodaigi or Okutone for a sure thing.

Photos from yesterday and this morning.
