It's a very fine morning here in Zao.

The kind where there's lots of blue sky and sun - not the kind where there's a thick layer of fresh light powder (unfortunately). Still it should be a fun morning sliding down the groomers...

But still, everywhere is looking very beautiful this morning. And we can look forward to some snow falling later tonight (perhaps even sooner) and snow at times over the next few days and perhaps into the weekend as well. Just how much and how regular, we'll just have to see.

Here's to the upcoming fresh snowfall.

---

The 'Juhyo Lightup' evening ropeway service is currently open.

All being well it should remain open every day until next Sunday 28th February, from 5pm until 9pm - the last ropeway goes up at 7:50pm. Please note that you need to buy a separate ticket to use this service - it is not included in any of the normal ski lift tickets.
