Morning from Zao.

I measured 13cm of fresh snowfall this morning since my report yesterday.

Yesterday it was busy out there! Lots of people deciding to get their first turns of the season in by the looks of things, I was actually quite surprised at the number of people who turned up.

There's no changes that I can see in terms of lifts and courses operating this morning.

It is cloudy and a cold start to the day but we might get some sunshine that will warm things up a bit over the next day or two. A return to snowfall is forecast by Wednesday morning.

Lifts that are planned to be operating today at Zao Onsen:

Zao Ropeway
Chuo Ropeway
Sky Cable
Mikaeri pair
Chuo Number 1 pair AB
Onsen Number 1 pair
