Sorry for the late report today, technical issues prevented it going up this morning.

Today started off fine with some clouds moving in during the day. Not much of a wind, good visibility and busy slopes for the most part.

'Light up' tonight and tomorrow night with the Zao Ropeway opening to take people up to see the floodlit monsters at the top of the resort. Should be generally clear today and tomorrow, fingers crossed. The monsters are not in full dress as yet, but it's still a sight. Peak season usually later this month and through February.

Of course we'd like heavy snow once that closes each night, but it will probably be Monday when we next see and kind of decent snowfall.
