It’s mostly sunny with some clouds this morning. I went to Chisenupuri for touring yesterday. It was colder than I expected and top of mountain was frozen. So I ended hiking at middle part and enjoyed soft fresh snow and slashy spring corn snow!
The weather and snow conndition will be similar to yesterday, it’s cold and wind chill at higher area. I will wear one more layer and go later as snow become softer after 10:30 am. Kiroro might be a good option, too. I have heard lots of good stories there.
It will be windy and good day for rest tomorrow.
