Once again today the upper part of the mountain is covered in cloud and visibility is poor on the upper slopes of Zao. Not much snow to report this morning, just a cm or two and it is snowing lightly at the moment on the mountain.

It is a cold morning and -9 degrees just a bit earlier when I checked and I don't think we can expect it to warm up much after that. Warmer conditons are on their way though and while there may still be a chance of snow into tomorrow, after that we are hoping that the local forecast of clearer conditions comes true. A run of a few clear days with blue skies would be good for a change - well, I think so anyway! It might mean less of the shoveling and moving snow around!
