Cinnamon Roll Snow Version

“Cinnamon rolls” were common as warm weather arrived in the Tsugaike backcountry just as we finished up the first weekend of our AST avalanche course today. We’re due for one day of warm wet air from Southeast Asia to pass through; by Tuesday evening cold air moves in behind the departing weather system and brings the usual Hakuba snowfall back.
