[Posted earlier this morning]

Good morning from Zao. No new snow to report this morning, just a slight wind and a relatively mild -5 degrees earlier on this morning. Still cold though, hey? It is a partly cloudy start to the day but quite bright. So cloudy/fine for the day looks likely - and more of the same tomorrow. Wednesday currently looks set to be one of those 'must have camera' days with clear, sunny skies.

Not much new snow over the last few days - obviously affecting the snow quality especially after everyone at the weekend carving it up. Temperatures keeping fairly cold though are helping and there is still good snow to find out there. And some very fine views too - the Juhyo ice monsters are looking very genki this season.

Official snow depths (20th February 12)

Chuo - 240cm
Paradise - 260cm
Uwanodai - 185cm
