Yesterday was another reset with nearly half a foot on my car park and much more on mountain. The weather was sunny and really warmed up though with a temp inversion in the bottom of the valley down at Yubiso. Up top saw stronger winds but the valley snow wasn't so good in the afternoon. Last night's snow was very light and there's a possibility the top was reset but doubtful.

Forecast is for more snow this evening and decent weather tomorrow. The trend here has been very little snow for me to deal with at the base of Tenjin, virtually nothing in town but up top and the backcountry has been soft and fully or partially reset most of the time.

Tenjin is open from 7am on weekends and holidays henceforth till end March.
