At last, some blue skies! That's what some people will definitely be saying anyway this morning. There is still quite a lot of white cloud hanging around the mountain but there's also a good share of blue sky and it's a lovely morning here in Zao.

There is just a few cm of snow to report this morning as the snow eased off yeaterday and overnight. It's another cold morning, of course, but I think lots of people will be revved up to get out there and enjoy the weather of today after that long run of snowy and cloudy conditions.

A chance of snow today actually according to the forecast - in a way I hope not - and also tomorrow but not heavy, followed by clearer conditions on Sunday and Monday.

One of the first events of the Zao Juhyo Festival 2012 tomorrow on the Uwanodai area of the resort starting at 7:30pm and so if you want a taste of a Japanese snow festival that's the place to be tomorrow.

Utopia - 250cm
Chuo - 210cm
Paradise - 240cm
Uwanodai - 175cm
