The sky is yellow this morning. I went to Goshiki for split boarding yesterday. I hiked up for one hour and had a good run there. Snow was not powdery but still in good condition. I saw a huge crack on the ridge of Mikaeri bowl. Please be careful if you traverse from Annupuri to Moiwa.
Toxic particles known as PM2.5 from China has reached Hokkaido yesterday. You might feel dusty, it’s not very good for your health so we better wear face mask today.
The temperature will go up high from tomorrow. Real spring will come soon.
