I have another 20cm or so of snow to report this morning as this very pleasant snow storm continutes to delive the goods. It's a cold morning and snow is continuing to fall. Not much of a wind at all actually, but poor visibility on all but the lower slopes of the mountain.

It looks like the snow clouds should begin easing off today and we might be in for some milder days later on in the week as well.

Today the following lifts are operating around the mountain:

Zao Ropeway
Chuo Ropeway
Sky Cable
Chuo No1
Utopia No1
Paradise AB
Onsen No1
Yokokura No1

The resort plans to have almost all of the mountain open from this coming Saturday, 15th December.

Chuo Area

Utopia

Paradise

Uwanodai
