It’s foggy and back to spring world this morning. I went to Grand Hirafu yesterday. Although the top lifts and gates were closed, I enjoyed fresh snow from the gate 5 at Hanazono.

Did you find that snow was sticky yesterday? It’s because of yellow sand from China. Once it falls, we need to have special spring wax to keep riding. You can get it at ski shop or tune up shop.

I will get windy this afternoon and night, some new snow might fall.
