Well, it seems like it didn’t snow much last night. I was excited when I went home at 7 pm, it was snowing quite heavy.
I hope upper mountains got more snow! I’m going to Hanazono and see how much snow has fallen. Hopefully the visibility will get better. I believe I can find some fresh snow somewhere and have fresh turns.
More snow might fall tonight and tomorrow morning.
