So Tenjindaira resort was closed yesterday due to strong winds up top. They were audible from the base so must have been raging. It snowed here for well over 24 hours so despite the resort reporting only 5cm at the base of the lifts, there are bound to be patches of deep snow today and conversely some spots where wind has completely removed fresh snow. The sun is just poking its head through the clouds now at 10am. It's forecast to reach +3C at the base today so hopefully that means slightly below zero up top. Will be there soon investigating!

Hodaigi yesterday was quite nice but rather crowded due to a snow festival they were holding. The base was quite hard due to Saturday's rain but soft snow managed to accumulate on top and the riding was fast and smooth.

Set for warmer weather tomorrow, snow starting tomorrow night.
