Training Report - Niseko-Goshiki Pass 10
K participated in this training. It was minus 4 degrees Celsius at the Goshiki Hot Springs (Goshiki Onsen). A depression carried snowfall during the night. However, the sunshine of this season is very strong. So the snow on the road is very unstable and going to melt rapidly. The snow at low altitudes is already gone so he does his training at high altitudes.
