Hello.

I wanted to post an update on our progress with site updates.

As you may well know we have been busy working on updates for SnowJapan for the 2016/2017 season since around January.

There are 2 main things going on at the same time... some very interesting new functionality and changes in presentation for some major parts of the site, and also a lot of general information is being carefully checked, updated and added to.

Due to the major nature of the upcoming changes, we are testing and making all of the information updates on test pages. There is so much information being worked on and changes being made at the moment that it would be hugely time consuming to update the new and the current site at the same time. What this means basically is that the new content will all go online at the same time in one go, ie. not bit by bit.

We'll flick a switch and it'll all be fresh and updated. Hopefully!

We are doing our best to realistically target sometime in October as the time when we will be able to flick that switch.

I think it will be worth the wait. It may be very tiring but we really enjoy this process of moving forward and improving every year. The new 'stuff' we have lined up is very interesting and we are putting a lot of effort into refreshing and adding useful information to the site as well.

Gambarimasu!

Quick update.
Things are going really well.
We're pouring ridiculously huge amounts of loving care into updating - and adding - information to SnowJapan.
Really excited about showing everyone what we have been up to.
Hopefully that will be in October, so there's at least a few more months of full-on work - and then fine-tuning and polishing - left to get through.
More updates in September.
Have a fun August!
