It looks like lots of northern Japan is going to enjoy clear, blue skies today - including Zao. Yes, this morning it one of those rather rare days when there's hardly a cloud up there and just blue skies. Excellent visibility and amazing views on offer today, folks. Doesn't get much better than today in terms of clear mid-season in Zao.

No new snow to report and cold temperaturss overnight. It's a somewhat chilly -9 degrees out there but I doubt that is going to dampen the enthusiasm of anyone getting up on the lifts today. It will no doubt get relatively mild in the day especially down in the village, with a high of -1 forecast.

Looks like from tomorrow some clouds will start moving back in, perhaps some light snow on Friday and then potentially decent snowfall due on Saturday.
