2 cm of new snow has fallen last night. It’s foggy outside at 7 am. I went to Grand Hirafu yesterday. I could see some fresh snow at Fujiwara however beautiful groom runs looked attractive for me. I enjoyed curving so much under the blue sky.
It might snowed more at upper mountain, hopefully the visibility is good enough to find some fresh snow. I might go to Niseko Village and check how much new snow has fallen.
The weather forecast looks nice for the weekend with some sunshine and no wind.
