It’s sunny and warm this morning. It became very warm yesterday afternoon. When I came back home like 9 pm, it was still warm.
I hope frozen mountains melted a bit but not too much. I will go to Hanazono for curving, I should go early before snow become too soft and sticky. I like riding at Hanazono in spring time as there are many fun items such as waves, banks, tables etc.
After this warm weekend, winter will come back. It might snow on Monday night and we might get some fresh powder on Tuesday.
