Heavy snow falling here at the base of Tenjindaira and everywhere is getting it though its accumulating here at the rate of at least 10-15cm an hour. Tenjin is shut due to wind till noon. Hodaigi and Okutone will be getting less snow but by the afternoon they should be really nice and far less wind over there too.

The forecast at Tenjin is showing a clear patch tomorrow morning but otherwise snow till Wednesday. Minakami town forecast is calling it clear tomorrow then snow Monday and Tuesday. My impression is, we have another big dump in progress and the last one pretty much didn't let up.

For those heading to the mountains, stay safe on the roads and run your floatiest skis or board because its going to get deep!
