It feels slightly colder this morning - though still mild - and in contrast to the blue skies of yesterday, this morning it is grey and cloudy over Zao. Just cloudy with hardly any wind at all.

Snow conditions? They're keeping pretty good actually, especially on the upper slopes, as up on the mountain it is staying suitably cold though we could do with it being colder still. And of course we always want more snow! The good news is that we will maybe see some decent snowfall tonight, though after those clouds clear up tomorrow morning it should be a generally dry weekend but colder than the last few days.

Early next week though it will be back to milder conditions.

Have a fun weekend if you visit Zao!
