I thought it would be sunny today but not. It’s cloudy and snowing a little bit outside. I went to Grand Hirafu to hike up to the peak, however when I got to the top lift, mountain was covered by clouds. So I decided to not go and enjoyed beautiful groomers in Hanazono.

I was going to try hiking up to the peak today but probably not due to poor visibility. I might go to Moiwa and enjoy curving on their beautiful groomer. Did you know if you return your Moiwa day pass to Moiwa lodge 834, you get a drink and snack for free in the restaurant? You can enjoy coffee or beer after riding!

Not many snow fall until Wednesday. Have a great Sunday!
