Missed report yesterday as I was too busy carving ice turns at Hodaigi. Been wondering what the weather would deliver all week and turns out its rain here at the base of Tenjindaira, rain in town down in Minakami and I heard about 9am that clouds were looking threatening at Hodaigi. The only positive to take out of this is that Tenjin has reported 5cm of snow up top and given the temps (pretty cold), it should still be snowing up there.

The forecast is for light snow or snow showers going forward at 1500m though Saturday is looking clear which will be nice for those racing in the 9th annual Tenjin banked slalom. The course is insane this year (should have taken a photo) and those who don't bring their A game are going to get bucked off that thing in short order.
