I went to Hirafu yesterday. It was a bit windy and top lifts were closed. I enjoyed the beautiful groomers and some fresh snow in the trees! Today the weather is lots calmer and sun comes out, it might be a good day to walk to the peak if the gates open. Don’t forget to bring your safety equipment and camera:)

After this beautiful day, two little low pressure are  coming closer to Hokkaido. I hope they bring many  new snow. Let’s be patient and see what’s happening…
