Missed report yesterday - apologies - on the back of all time conditions at Tenjindaira. One of the best days of the season but unfortunately followed today by rain, valley fog and warm sticky conditions. It did turn to snow this afternoon though the wet stuff rather than the good stuff.

Was over at Hodaigi this afternoon though and the pistes weren't too bad and the precipitation much lighter. The forecast is calling for snow and a return to Winter temps this evening so am cautiously optimistic about tomorrow.

The photo is from yesterday.
