Late report today on account of the extraordinary conditions here at the moment.

The mountain reported 25cm overnight up top though there was a solid 40cm at lower levels in the morning and another 10cm has fallen during the day. Riding up top today there was at least 50cm up there. Excellent quality snow and bonded reasonably well though the very top layer was sluffing off steep terrain in the backcountry.

Should be great by tomorrow and its still snowing here.

Tenjin didn't open the cat track today due to avalanche risk but buying single lifts up the gondola gave access to some very good riding. Things look set to warm from tomorrow but in the morning and later on the Northern aspects, the riding should be great provided the wind doesn't spoil the party. Was over at Hodaigi early in the morning and they got quite a bit of snow there too.
