A snowy morning in Zao with at least another 10cm outside here, so hopefully up to double that in higher places on the mountain. It's a cold one and when I glanced at the thermometer outside earlier on it was down below minus 5. Brrrrr. A cold -12 is being posted by the top Ropeway station as well.

It's still snowing and poor visibility with a thick fog thing going on outside this morning. Not much to see at all. Hopefully it might be clearer for the evening light up.

Lots of people here in Zao this weekend as everyone prepares for New Year. Zao is not famous for having a lot of nightlife (far from it) but there will be lots of things going on in the hotels and ryokans in the villages and the few places where people can go.

Snow and possibly strong winds is lined up over the next few days.
