Mountains are shining under beautiful blue sky. I hope everyone enjoyed the gift from sky last weekend in Niseko. I’ve heard lots of stories of powder snow.
I will be back in Grand Hirafu today, look for left overs in trees, then enjoy beautiful groomed runs. The temperature will go up from this afternoon and stay warm for next couple of days. It will get windier too, so better to get up now and ride in the morning.
Cold weather will be back in 3 days. Enjoy sunshine today!
