This morning I bring the news we have all been waiting for.... Zao is open at last!

With about 10cm or so of fresh snow again overnight, they have deemed that enough to open up parts of the resort.

Parts of the Chuo and Utopia course areas of the resort are now open, with two pair lifts in Chuo and one pair lift in Utopia operating.

It's a cold morning but right now just cloudy and even clearing up. It looks like we might be in for a few days where we get a sprinkling of snow overnight and then clear days into next week. No huge snowstorm lined up just yet I'm afraid so it looks like it is going to be a slow and gradual start to the season.
