I had good news yesterday, well this morning it is very good news.

Some mad snowfall in the region brought over 50cm of fresh snow to Zao in the last 24 hours. All of a sudden we see Utopia on 240cm official snow depth.

What's more conditions have eased off and while there's still a fair bit of cloud around the sun is out in places so decent visibility on mountain so we can really enjoy all this new snow.

Strong winds were affecting the top Gondola but that seems to be not an issue now. Subject to change.

Fantastic conditions though. Great stuff.
