It’s very cold this morning. It was super windy last night. I went to Hanazono yesterday. As the Super course wasn’t reset so I went up to Hanazono #3 and had a couple of great runs on fresh snow!!
Due to strong wind last night, snow depth will be difference, some area has more than 20 cm, some area don’t have any… Let’s go out and find which course has got the most! Now I’m waiting for the top lifts open and all resorts get connected.
Snow stopped falling once and will start falling this weekend again.
