Good morning from Hakuba.

The rain turned into snow on the mountains around lunchtime but it was generally limited visibility out there and... not particularly nice.

Ah, better this morning and some fresh snow to report:

Hakuba Goryu: up to 3cm
Hakuba 47: 2-3cm
Hakuba Cortina: 1-2cm
Hakuba Happo-one: 1cm

Just a sprinkling down below and I'll be generous adding 1cm to the report.

So expect a thin layer on the slopes this morning. Not enough to cover things up good and proper, but welcome all the same.

And while it's cloudy with limited visibility generally at the start of the day, the sun should be out today. Should keep fairly cold though.

Hakuba Happo-one Super Riesen Competition is being held at Happo-one today and so there's a few course restrictions over there. Good luck to everyone taking part.

SnowJapan moved to a new server yesterday and everything seems to be in place and working as it should. Traffic increases every season and so the site needs more powerful hardware to keep up with it - hence the move. Things seem nice and very fast this morning which is great to see.

Good job guys. And congratulations on the continued growth. :)
