Good morning Zao Now readers and welcome back to the SnowJapan 'Zao Now' reports for the 2015-2016 season.

I hope you had a good summer. I was actually away from Zao over the summer period, but I have been back to enjoy the lovely autumn colours. Things are still looking very colourful still, but there's a definitely late autumn feel in the air and winter is most certainly on the way... the other night it was down to 3C.

Last season Zao Onsen resort opened (well, a limited 'pre-open') on Saturday 23rd November. It will be interesting to see if the resort can once again open on a similar date this season. You can look back over archive reports using the links at the bottom of this report page.

I will be back with news of weather and hopefully snowfall over the next few weeks and then of course once the season gets going plan be posting updates every day through to the end of the season in May 2016.

May it be a long and particularly snowy and fun winter!
