The snow was soft but things got much too warm yesterday and it froze into an ice sheet overnight.

Got to the top this morning and the wind was so strong that only the middle lift was open at Tenjindaira. Snow is falling but mostly getting blown around. The cat track wasn't too bad, icy and fast. Hiked the ridge and everything over the back is in the same condition from what I can tell, ice burn to use the local name.

Weather is forecast to warm tomorrow, hopefully it softens things up.
