It’s cloudy and colder than I expected this morning. Yesterday was an amazing day! Groomers at Hanazono #3 were in the best condition, nicely hard packed and very fast. I enjoyed curving under the beautiful blue sky!
I hope the temperature won’t go up too high today and snow will fall but not rain. We should go riding earlier before the visibility gets poor. Southerly wind brings yellow dusts, so wearing face mask is recommended even it’s not cold.
Blue sky and sunshine are expected tomorrow, so hopefully we will get some fresh snow this afternoon. Keep crossing fingers!
