It has been a cloudy day in Zao. It started off a cold -8C when I started out this morning early on with a moderate to strong wind, but not enough to affect lifts for the day. A bit of snow but that eased off. There's still quite a lot of cloud around but blue sky as well and the sun shining down on us at the moment before it gets dark soon.
Busy, as you might expect on this first day of the 3 day weekend.

Snow is forecast for tomorrow.
