No fresh snow and the morning saw warmish temps but the snow remains soft with plenty of powder on the Northern aspects that haven't been ridden over the past 2 days.

Never got above zero up the top either which is good from a stability perspective.

Big cracks have opened up on the Southern faces of Tanigawadake and hopefully the forecasted snow for tomorrow is enough to move anything unstable.

Looks like moderate snow tomorrow so conditions Saturday should be good.
