A new record this morning for the season in Zao... a temperature of -16.5 recorded up top. Brrrr.

After the fine weather that we were treated to yesterday - to the delight of many weekend visitors - the snow clouds moved in and started snowing and this morning we have another 15-20cm of snow in Zao. The top part of the mountain is once again covered in fog/cloud but down on the lower slopes visibility is fairly decent. It is now -6 degrees here and just a slight wind so fairly comfortable conditions out there, and good snow to play in.

Snow looks set to be with us and falling through today and tomorrow but after that things look likely to change and we are going to see a break in the continuous snow that we have had of late. Wednesday to Friday look like they may bring clearer skies and milder temperatures, though it will still likely remain below 0.... Hope so - while some clearer weather will be welcomed by lots of people, we want that lovely snow to keep good!
