It's Christmas morning and we have another 30cm or so of new freshly-fallen snow in Zao. Somewhat unexpectedly, earlier on there are also some blue skies on view and it looked like it might just clear up, but the clouds have moved in again and light snow is falling and the mountain covered in cloud once again.

Not much of a wind at all but it is cold out there, and currently around -7 degrees but probably as cold as -13 degrees up on the top of the mountain.

Great conditions for a Christmas ski or snowboard then. I know where I'm heading now! Have a fun day.
