An evening report today. It has been a busy one. Not only for me but more people out on the slopes as more people turn up for the New Year holidays.

Not much of a wind today and just a few cm of new snow to report. The snow soon thinned out though and ended up being a cloudy day in Zao. Still cold but not as cold as it has been and absolutely every single lift out there moving now in time for this very important part of the season.

More cloud and light snow overnight and into tomorrow but nothing major and it looks like we may have a clear and peaceful New Year. It will be staying cold though so wrap up well.

Official snow depths (29th Dec 11)
Utopia - 135cm
