Zao has turned white!

Pretty much the whole of the ski resort has a thin blanket of snow on it early this morning as we had a very cold night. Today also marks the first time that temperatures go below zero in the village (-1 a little earlier) and even in the village we have been treated to a few cm of snow. I am hearing that there has been about 10cm of snow on the top of the mountain.

Fantastic.

This covering will surely not last though as things look likely to get warmer on Friday and Saturday with temperatures rising back to around 6 or 7 degrees in the daytime.

Look for some more snow around Sunday night into Monday.

As people in the village frantically get all of their preparations done in time for the winter season, the resort is pretty much ready and on stand by.
