Thin clouds cover mountains but I believe it will clear up later. I went to Hanazono yesterday. Upper area got 5 – 10 cm of fresh snow. I went out from the gate 5 and enjoyed some fresh powder! Groomers were also nice and recovered so I enjoyed groomers, too. It was a fun day under the blue sky.
Today I am planning to hike some mountain with my friend. I don’t know which mountain yet. I hope there is some powder still. Yesterday’s new snow is not enough to cover all icy parts. Please ride carefully when you ride ungroomed area.
I can’t believe today is the end of February. I hope we will get snow again in March.
