Beautiful morning under clear blue sky. I went to Grand Hirafu yesterday. I hiked up to the peak as visibility wasn’t too bad when I was there. I had a great first track at Fujiwara bowl, fresh snow was untouched, nice and smooth.
It’s such a beautiful day so everything will be so fun today! It snowed a bit yesterday afternoon so I might go to Grand Hirafu again and search for more fresh snow. Snow is still fresh in the forest and shade like Miharashi course.
It will be another sunny day without wind tomorrow. A good day to plan for touring.
