Training Report - Mt.Tokachidake (Mt.Tokachi) 41
K participated in this training. It was minus 5 degrees Celsius at the Tokachidake Hot Springs (Tokachidake Onsen). It's first time to ride on snow in this season. But we are already in November. This year, the snow season came a little later than usual. He brought his first bike for snow for this training. This day, the road began to be snow covered in the afternoon. He has to go back to Asahikawa soon because he now leaves in Asahikawa as he works in a hospital there for just three months. Therefore, the time for the training is limited.
He's doing the interval training at the summit.
At the beginning of the training, there was snow just only ablve the altitude of 1200m.
But the road is more and more snow covered.

Winds are getting stronge and it's now blizzard.

He doesn't climb long distance during this interval training.
