Hello from Zao and.... officially the first weekend of the ski season! Well, sort of.

It's called 'Pre-Open' and the resort decided to give it a go as there was enough snow and things were ready. So yes, Saturday, today and tomorrow the Chuo Number 1 paid lift will be open for skiers and snowboarders. A lift ticket for using the lift will be 3000 yen for adults and 1500 yen for children.

Why tomorrow... a Monday? Well, it's a national holiday in Japan.

So this lift is not planning to be operating Tuesday onwards, though depending on the weather/snow information we might see it moving again next weekend.

The Zao Now reports will click into daily from December - will try to update the page a few times before then with the latest.
