It’s foggy and wet this morning. I enjoyed fresh snow yesterday for the first time in a while. I went to Hanazono first and had a good run at #3 lift, then went down to Hirafu Gondola then went to Miharashi. Snow in trees was like fresh cream cheese cake, it was so tasty.
I believe it snowed a bit on the mountain last night. So I hope there is some fresh snow again. Visibility is poor at upper area so I might go Moiwa or Hirafu for Miharashi again. Snow condition is mixed with soft and icy now, please ride carefully.
Some more snow might fall tonight.
