It is just a cloudy morning in Zao Onsen early on but surprisingly mild - it doesn't often go into the + territory during winter but right now it is +2 in the village. It may well start snowing by the end of the day though nothing too significant. Things are still looking good though for a considerable amount of snowfall in Zao from Wednesday night when it looks like it will start snowing for at least a few days and into the New Year. Temperatures will also drop and we'll be right back into wintery-like conditions.

Snow conditions out there right now are fair, and with the mild weather today it might get rather icy out there later on when the temperatures drop back down again.

Official snow depths on the resort:

Chuo area:
100cm

Paradise area:
110cm

Utopia area:
105cm
