It’s warm and cloudy this morning. Two of my favorite courses were finally opened yesterday! I went to Grand Hirafu first and celebrated Super Course’s full opening. Then moved to Niseko Village to celebrate Limited Course’s opening. Both courses are un-groomed steep courses for experts, Niseko locals love these courses.
The weather is mild and warm today. We should take one layer off otherwise we will sweat a lot. I might take a day off not riding as I kept riding from last weekend non stopping.
One more warm day tomorrow and winter will come back on Monday.
