Back to Pow
*7.1cm of fresh snow has fallen since yesterday morning and at 7:15am today the temperature was -8°C. It is snowing lightly in the Hirafu village right now but hopefully we will catch a few breaks in the weather with the sun breaking through. It is slightly colder this morning and the snow is very light and powdery so conditions will be excellent higher up on the mountain.

Awesome early morning session with Scott
Yesterday i had the chance to take out Scott for a photo session and everything just fell into place – we made the most of our blue bird chances moved quickly and we got the shots. Cheers Scott.
