It snowed as not heavy as I expected. Mountains are covered by cloud and looks windy.
Grand Hirafu and Hanazono are now connected at the upper area and we can ride all the way to the bottom. Looks like more snow has fallen in Hanazono side last night so I will go there and enjoy new powder snow!
Temperature will go up once in middle of the week. I hope it won’t rain again.
