I’m so happy to see the white world again this morning. I went to Moiwa yesterday, Moiwa had got 25 cm of fresh snow over night! I enjoyed tons of fresh powder all day until 3 pm.
Due to strong wind, many of upper lifts were closed in the afternoon, there must be plenty of fresh snow left on the mountain. I am still deciding which resort I should go today… So many choices!! Hopefully wind is not too strong to stop the top lifts.
A little more snow might fall tonight. Have a great day!
