Lovely (mostly) clear blue skies over Zao this morning. No wind to speak of. Just lovely. But... a lack of snow! It's getting very thin on the ground by base now, though still enough cover for the Chuo Number 1 paid lift to be open -- it's just that part of Chuo open at the moment I'm afraid. It is though a lovely day to be out in the fresh air, if you can take any good from that!

So, when is the snow coming? Perhaps snowfall on Friday and Saturday, though I can't say it looks like it will be anything significant. I think we are going to have to wait a little while longer as nature conjures up her magic!
