It’s warm and cloudy this morning. I went to Grand Hirafu yesterday to search left overs, then I found some in trees at Miharashi course! Snow condition was still great in trees. Groom runs were also great and I enjoyed curving soon.
Snow condition will be changed today due to warm weather. The temperature will go up to plus 11 °C at village level! It will be plus at high mountains too. Strong wind from south and poor visibility at upper mountain, sounds like it’s a good day to take a rest.
This warm weather won’t stay longer, winter will be back on Thursday.
