Morning from Zao. -3C down in the village base area, fine early on but a moderate wind. Hopefully it won't affect lifts during the day.

It's the Juhyo (Ice Monsters) Festival on Saturday and so preparations are being made around the village for that including lots of snow sculptures and interesting shapes emerging. It's going to be a busy weekend in Zao and as well as the festival there will be quite a few visitors coming to celebrate the Chinese New Year here as well.

For the moment sun is forecast for Saturday so we'll just have to keep watch on that.
