You might have seen on the national news last night that there was heavy snow falling in Yamagata. There was, but not in Zao! It seems that some parts of Yamagata got up to 50cm of snow yesterday and some of these areas aren't even high up mountain areas, but here in Zao we only got a small amount of new snow. Perhaps up to 10cm or so.

This morning there are a lot of clouds around but at times the sun is showing through the clouds creating some very pretty landscapes. It is not snowing at the moment but it should be later on in the day with that healthy snowfall still lined up on the forecasts.

The resort is still just open the one part of the Chuo area open.... more opening up just as soon as they can.
