Snow started falling last night about 9 pm and 10 cm of new snow has fallen. Talk about snow this morning and yesterday.
I might go to Moiwa today, I haven’t been to Moiwa this season yet so I’ll see how the snow is there. I found a fun event for skier. ROKO skis will have the demo event at Grand hirafu in front of .Base (ticket center) . ROKO skis are made in Kutchan ski brand and you can custom build your own skis!
It’s not dumping snow but keeps snowing constantly for next 5 days.
