White mountains are shining under the beautiful blue sky this morning. I went to Grand Hirafu again yesterday and had an amazing run at east face from the peak. Snow was fresh, soft, untouched and deep all the way to the bottom. It was one of the best runs in this season.
It’s almost no wind and no cloud today. It’s a great day to explore Niseko! Hiking up to the peak from the gate or touring local mountains are good ideas for today. Just cruising on corduroys is of cause fun. Don’t miss the spring fire works tonight at Grand Hirafu, too!
The weather will stay calm and stable for a while. Have a great weekend!
