Change again this morning - it's a cloudy start to the day and also a very mild one. Currently it is 0 degrees in the village. Light snow is falling higher up, at the top of the mountain it is a mild -5 degrees. Well, mild for up there anyway!

After the crowds of the long weekend have gone back, today the resort is looking very quiet... not many people around at all.

The forecast is for snow later on and snow clouds to be around Zao for the next 5 or 6 days and colder temperatures so we should be receiving some regular topups to keep things good.

Official snow depths on the resort:

Chuo area:
165cm

Paradise area:
180cm

Utopia area:
175cm
