After a cloudy start to the day, it has cleared up considerably and now there is a fair bit of blue sky over Zao. It has been a cold morning, -10 degrees in the village earlier on and about -4 degrees now, with just a light wind. No new snow to report this morning. Mid-week the slopes are generally uncrowded - though the top course is of course very popular with the views of the juhyo trees - and snow conditions remain good as those cold temperatures stay with us.

So how is the forecast looking for the coming weekend and beyond? Perhaps some light snow later on today into the weekend, with clearer skies forecast for Sunday and Monday at the moment.

Official snow depths on the resort:

Chuo area:
230cm

Paradise area:
235cm

Utopia area:
250cm
