Well overnight we seemed to have got some rain/sleet falling but I'm happy to say that it is just about holding it's own as snow this morning. Just about. Not the driest fluffiest kind of snow, that's for sure - but better than full on rain! Less than 1cm on the ground.

It's also a very warm morning. Well, very warm for Zao in early February that is. The temperature in the village is above zero this morning which is unusual and right now about +2 degrees.

The upper half of the mountain is not visible from base this morning.

So not the most appealing of mornings here, but the good news is that tomorrow we should be back to colder temperatures and see some proper snowfall as well which should continue over the next few days.

Official snow depths (7th February 12)
Utopia - 260cm
Chuo - 220cm
Paradise - 250cm
Uwanodai - 180cm

Operating lifts (7th February 12)
