Well, it seems that the resort is not opening this morning as we heard last night.
More coming up soon....


The latest from Zao is that the ski resort is doing checks on all facilities and equipment and will open again as soon as possible. It won't be this morning though, perhaps this afternoon. We will try to make another update this afternoon with the latest information.


Some news from Zao. The resort has announced that they will be closed from now until Friday, with a view to re-opening on Saturday 19th March.

Electricity was restored on Saturday evening and checks to the facilities at the resort have been made and are still continuing. There hasn't really been any major damage in Zao village, but aftershocks - though not major or damage causing - are still happening from time to time.

There are also issues of transportation (people actually getting to the resort) along with the important need for people to preserve energy/electricity in these next few days to consider.

Taking all of these things into account, and the safety of everyone involved, the resort has decided that it will be best to wait until at least Saturday before re-opening to the public.

We will keep this report updated sometime in the week with the latest information at hand.

Hoping for the safety of everyone. Take care.
