Probably our biggest 12 hours of snow for the season overnight. The dump started out a bit wet after yesterday's light rain but I ended up with 80cm of snow on the car park and the top 70cm was blower pow.

Tenjin was shut.... no comment there besides it's going to be all time tomorrow and with a whole day of decent weather to groom things it ought to open early. Hodaigi got at least 40cm on most parts of the resort and there was an ice crust down there on the North-Western aspects but conditions were generally awesome with very few chasing the good stuff.

Drove past Okutone and it looked like people there were sinking in about 20cm, the whole town got snow so a nice end to the three days of warm weather.

Forecast is for clear weather tomorrow morning, snow to start up tomorrow afternoon sometime and it looks like another big dump Wednesday night through Thursday night so time to refuel the blower and get Tenjin while its on tomorrow.
