It's another snowy morning in Zao folks. Another 15-20cm of fresh snow awaited us this morning and we have had snow falling during the day and so there'll be a bit more than that to report. The good news for those who are not keen on temperatures of around -16 degrees is that today, while still cold, is much less extreme and more like what we are used to. Yesterday really was a cold one.

Anyway, it has been a snowy day and snow conditions out on the slopes are, I can report, very nice indeed. The resort is all open and the weekend is just around the corner. Just a normal 2 day weekend this time round!

There will be a chance of snow falling throughout the weekend though the forecast does promise the chance of somewhat brighter conditions tomorrow - it's all very grey today making visibility a bit of a problem.
