Todays report was written earlier but posted later due to technical issues. Apologies for the delay.

It is a beautiful morning in Zao. Blue skies, just a bit of wispy cloud. Cold with a temperature when I got up of -6 degrees and the top of the resort reporting -11C, but it should warm up a bit today. In fact today and tomorrow we might experience temperatures above zero in the afternoons.

Not a whole lot of snow on the weeks forecast, with snow showers from time to time but nothing major right now as it stands. The Ice Monsters though are in very good shape this year and well worth a look.
