Not a whole lot of snow to report since the last report in terms of cm anyway. This morning though it was a cloudy start though right now outside I can see the sun out and shining down on the slopes of Zao and lots of blue skies so those clouds seem to be on their way out. It looks like this week we are going to see a break from them as well with the forecast telling us to expect generally clearer skies and appearances by the sun from tomorrow until at least Thursday with the next real snowfall due around Friday.

It's a cold day today still, though things are going to get milder as well this coming week. We don't get too many consecutive days of fine clear weather in Zao mid season, but it looks like we are about to get just that. A week for the photographers out there, perhaps?
