It is a cloudy start to the day in Zao. Yesterday started off cold but it warmed up with the fine sunny weather and this morning it is a warm start to the day. It is already 8 degrees in the village and will rise well into the double digits as the day progresses. Up at the top of the mountain it was 0 degrees earlier this morning, so expect it to be fairly mild up there too.

Yesterday was the last day of the season for a fair number of lifts at the resort but there is still a large skiable area of the resort open and the top area is planning to be open until 5th May - so we have another full month of skiing and snowboarding.

See below for information on the lifts that remain open at Zao.

It looks like there might be a chance of rain later today though tomorrow is forecast to be a fine sunny day again with warm conditions.
