February started out rough, but it's been pretty dam good since.
Lots of rain in early February made it seem like it would be a short winter in Hakuba. Instead, it's been a repeat of January here. Conditions have been a mix: heavy snow with wind when it's storming, classic Hakuba blue-ish conditions. We still haven't been able to get at anything up high thanks to stability, but when it's so deep they need to shovel the chairlift out, can you really complain?
