Morning from Zao and it's a lovely start to the day here with a bright sun shining down on us and clear blue skies.

No wind and a chilly start to the morning.

Excellent weather conditions to put on the board(s) and slide down the slopes.

While the sun will see that it gets quite mild today, warmer temperatures are due over the coming few days at least, particularly around Tuesday and Wednesday when a lot of melt is going to happen. Rain around Thursday.

Let's forget about that last bit for now though and enjoy what should be a great day today.
