I went to Hanazono slowly yesterday. Snow was nicely hard packed and fast at quad 3 area. Then when I went down to the bottom, snow was nicely soft and slushy. I love this slushy spring snow, I feel like I am riding on powder sometime. Today, rain just changed to snow now. Snow might be wet and sticky a bit. I might enjoy Onsen today and ready for tomorrow.

Snow keeps falling today and sun will come back again tomorrow:)
