There was some rain yesterday but the sooner we forget that the better.

This morning I have (just about) 1cm of snow to report, though I may be being slightly generous there. A thin layer of snow once again as we wait for some decent snow to fall in the region.

When will that be? It's still looking like Monday into Tuesday is when to expect some potentially decent snow.

Zao Onsen will open as soon as there is enough snow.
