It was a beautiful day in Zao yesterday.

Now we have had our fix of sun, back to snow please! Just a few cm overnight and it has been snowing lightly this morning but now just cloudy. Some breaks in the cloud actually. -5 degrees and a recording of -10C up top.

The FIS Ski Jumping World Cup (Ladies) will be taking place in Zao over at the ski jump area on Saturday and Sunday. Always fun to watch them fly off that thing! From 10am on both days if you are interested.
