Snow started falling in late afternoon yesterday and covered on the ground again.

I had a couple days off not riding as snow melted pretty much by warm weather for last 3 days. The weather has been back to cold winter again, here we go again! I will go Grand Hirafu, I hope there is some fresh snow at upper mountain. But we need to remind there is icy base under fresh snow.

This weekend’s snow forecast looks good:) Let it snow.
