How about that then, a bit of new snowfall on the mountain overnight and the trees around the top of the resort looking very pretty this morning.

The day started cold as you would expect with some new snow, and the top station was recording a temperature of -6 degrees. Down here at village level it was more like +1 degrees.

It has been a fine morning though with bright blue skies over Zao.

Interesting forecast. Possibly rain starting things off later on today to be followed by snow -- and we might even get to see a few cm or so.

I'll let you know.

The following lifts plan to remain open through until 6th May:

All the Ropeways
Chuo Number 1 Pair AB (every day)
Chuo Number 2 Pair AB (every day until 14th April, then 20th/21st April and 27th April until 6th May)
Katakai Triple (every day until 14th April, then 20th/21st April, 27th-29th April, 3rd-6th May)
Paradise Pair AB (every day until 14th April, then 20th/21st April and 27th April until 6th May)
The Yokokura Number 1 Pair AB will remain open as long as there's enough snow.
