It’s raining outside and super warm already. I went to Hanazono yesterday and had fun runs on groomers under the blue sky. Snow was okay but a bit sticky after 10 am.
Today is a good day to rest. Mountins are wet and foggy. I’ve been riding pretty much everyday after last rain so my legs are sore. Good day to go Onsen or shopping.
The first big snow storm is coming for this weekend. Rest well for a while for real powder days.
