Life got in the way of yesterday's report but it started snowing here at 6am and then snowed quite a lot over the course of the day through about 10pm last night.

Strong winds but Tenjin was operational and reports were that there were pockets of great snow but some wind scoured ice mixed in on various parts of the mountain.

Today it's warmed up considerably already and the sun is shining.

Hodaigi had the busiest day of their year yesterday and Tenjin is looking quite crowded with the nice weather setting in.

Forecast is for a clear day, cloudy tomorrow morning before a multi-day snowstorm sets in tomorrow night. I've learnt not to get too excited this season but this one looks alright.
