Not a good day to be out there on the mountain.

It's rained a little here and there and the fog is thick and low in the sky. Hearing they have had some snow at the top of Tenjindaira but it's not of the quality we want and they've had some rain up there too. On the temp front, thank goodness it's cooled off but we have a temperature inversion going on. It was 3C in Minakami around 10am and only 2C at the top of Tenjin which is a solid 800m above.

Fortunately, snow is forecast for this evening and it looks like a decent one. It's expected to be clear on Dec 25th and then snow again from the evening of Boxing day onwards. The base up top is down to 90cm so not too bad but the snow down low has taken a thumping. Be nice to get things back on track!
