Wow. Today is one of those perfect days to be in Zao. 30+cm of new snow, excellent powder conditions, not busy - and fine weather.

It is currently -5 degrees in the village and after lots of snow over the last week or so this morning the sun is out and the mountain is visibile, and very fine it looks too. All that new snow means that there are some quite simply brilliant conditions out there and as the resort is not crowded at all the lucky people out there are in for a treat.

It doesn't get much better than this.

After a miss from the weather forecast people, their 'next snow' prediction is for over the weekend. In the meantime, I am going to go and enjoy this snow!

Official snow depths on the resort:

Chuo area:
160cm

Paradise area:
170cm

Utopia area:
155cm
