A cloudy Monday morning in Zao.

No new snow to report to you, a mild 3 degrees and no noticeable wind.

We're still expecting decent snowfall at the end of the week and into Saturday. Let's hope it lives up to the promise.

In the meantime currently skiable areas on the mountain remain (parts of) the Uwanodai, Chuo, Paradise, Shobunuma and Utopia areas of the resort.
