Thursday's glorious conditions lasted till around noon when warm weather put a stop to the fun. The run outs were so sticky as to be virtually impassable and they closed the cat track yesterday for this very reason. Temps hit a high of 15C at my place!

Yesterday was warm and clear, we had a little rain overnight but the weather is beautiful today and forecast to remain so for the weekend.

Snow is forecast from Monday evening through Thursday. This comes with a caveat as it may fall as rain around the bottom of the mountain.

n terms of events, the Minakami Vibes bowl is starting to take shape and it's looking pretty spicy. Sat April 13 and Sun Apr 14th are the dates with a big party at my place on Saturday night!
