After the cloud of yesterday, overnight we saw snow fall and this morning I have perhaps up to 15cm or so new snowfall to report in Zao. There's a moderate wind blowing things about this morning but other than that visibility isn't too bad, though the top half of the mountain is covered with clouds. One of those grey days without much contrast.

The snow continues to fall this morning and more snow due through until perhaps Saturday when we could see conditions clear up. After that a run of days with less snow and more of a chance of clearer skies, though temperatures should remain down well under zero.

With this new layer of snow conditions are better today and a few more days of snow should be good for the coming weekend.
