0 cm of new snow has fallen in the last 12 hours. I expected sunshine but light snow is falling at 6 am.
It was another good spring powder day yesterday. I went to Hirafu and hiked up to the peak from gate 3. It was a bit windy but visibility was nicer than last couple of days. Snow was fresh and creamy, I had a great run in Fujiwara gully:) It will be more cloudy this afternoon. If you are planning to hike up today, better to go earlier today.
The weather will stay calm for a next couple of days. Have a nice day!
