At 7am this morning it is 8 degrees in the village and I'm afraid I have to report that it has been raining since yesterdays evening report - and still is. There is a lot of low cloud around and the mountain isn't visible from the village --- not a fantastic day to be on the slopes perhaps.

The good news is that it should get colder later on and we should see some sprinklings of snow on the mountain by the end of the day and tomorrow should also be snowy. Lets hope so!

There has been a fire in Zao overnight starting around 2am this morning - it seems that a small ryokan has been burnt down but happily no-one been hurt. The reason for the fire is currently unknown.
