I said that today things would start to get colder - well, for now it is still relatively mild and just -1 degrees outside but we do actually have a few cm of fresh snow to report this morning. Poor visibility on the mountain as most of the mountain is covered in cloud/fog. Some strong winds are blowing things around.

The forecast has the weather clearing up somewhat later today and into tomorrow, a sprinkling of snow on Wednesday and perhaps more sun on Saturday. Easy to change at the moment so difficult to predict.

The weekend was very busy. Lots of people in Zao and lots of the main runs were very crowded. This morning we are back to the normal weekday style quiet resort and while there are always a fair few people in Zao through the peak season, the resort covers a large area so there's plenty of room and it feels quite quiet this morning. The traffic over the weekend means that the snow was cut up quite a lot and with no significant snowfall there's some icy conditions out there in places. A new snowfall would be very welcome to topup conditions once more back to great.
