No new snow in terms of cm this morning in Zao but yesterday was impressive. Surely over 50cm on the mountain and some deep conditions to be had.

It is actually snowing at the moment too so it's not over yet. Snow likely through today and tomorrow too.

Not actually particularly cold this morning either and just under 0 degrees.

Perhaps clearer weather conditions from Monday.

Enjoy the weekend!
