Pretty good conditions yesterday afternoon at Tenjin.

The warm weather has softened the snow into creamy soft corn. Very rip able stuff. I presume it's probably soft from 10am but I only made it out in the afternoon and it was much better than expected. That said, the forecast isn't great with the potential for rain tonight followed by colder weather and some snow tomorrow. Some snow here usually means enough for a reset but that hasn't been the case this March. Let's hope this is the one.

Supposed to hover just above and around zero at 1500m over the weekend so good conditions or bad? It's just too hard to call.
