Beautiful weather here lately but no fresh snow and when combined with the general steepness at Tenjin its not been great though there are still some patches of good stuff around in the backcountry.

This morning things have clouded over and I have a light dusting on the car park but though there is probably more up top, it's likely not enough for a reset.

Think I will be spending the day on the mellower ridges over at Kagura.

The resort is gearing up for the Tenjin Banked Slalom race this weekend and forecast wise, Sunday is set to get really warm (best not be near the backcountry if temps get up to 6C as forecast).

Monday it looks like we have a proper Winter storm on the way along with the Kamoshika race at Okutone (its also a banked slalom style event).
