Skiing in Echigo-Yuzawa, Niigata

Went to ski in Niigata prefecture. Early leave at 4 o'clock in morning to fit my trip into one day. On the way in Gunma prefecture, saw early morning frost on grass and car windows, but no snow. This year suprise again, because Niigata gets so little snow. Some slopes are closed and just biggest ones are open. Snow was icy, as you can see in video it was shaking like riding over potato field.
