Late appearing report:

Yesterday at Hodaigi was sublime with about 40cm of pow on piste. Woke up to virtually no snow this morning and then it dumped all day. Tenjin opened their cat track in a timely manner but by mid-afternoon the conditions were out of control. It's still dumping like crazy here this evening and my best bet is for a closure tomorrow (Tenjin) or at least a late open. The forecast is for lots more snow going forward and a hiker is lost out there (Mt Tanigawa) as of yesterday and I heard of a fatal avalanche incident at Arai too. Given my experience in the backcountry today, best play things safe as it was sliding from mid-afternoon onwards.

** Snowfall recorded in report today is up to morning (not including snow during the daytime).
