The snow clouds moved in again yesterday and this morning we are treated to another 20cm or so of fresh snow. It is another very cold and wintery morning in Zao, and it is hard to believe that we are almost into April. It has warmed up slightly now but earlier this morning it was -10 degrees. This blast of late winter has brought about something of a return of the Ice Monsters up at the top of the main Ropeway... not mid-season formations of course but certainly not something we expect at this time of year either. All good.

Not much snow lined up on the weekly forecast now and we can expect some warmer temperatures.

For now though, excellent snow conditions on the mountain.
