A case of scribe's fever prevented me from posting an update yesterday.

It was a warm one again though and the past few days of unseasonably hot weather have hammered the mountain and the snow pack. The cat track at Tenjin was actually the best run on the mountain and I checked it all right to the peak. Up top at Tenjin was super slushy and slow. A friend reported that everything was super icy this morning but that will no doubt soften up as we are in the grips of another warm one today with scattered clouds and gentle winds.

Tomorrow morning they forecast clouds in the morning, rain in the afternoon. Looks like a promising snowfall beginning on Monday with heaviest snowfall Monday night and snow continuing through Tuesday before clearing on Wednesday.
