Good morning from Zao where this morning it is snowing again and very poor visibility early on with the mountain completely covered in cloud. There is just a light wind this morning and 3-4cm of snow in the village overnight. With the snow falling this morning I would expect that to increase as the day moves on.

It's one of the peak weekends of the season as Monday is a national holiday and early on there are already quite a lot of people out there. The fog and thick cloud isn't helping with visibily and you won't be able to see much out there this morning. It might clear up though later in the day, so fingers crossed.

Light snow and cloud forecast for tomorrow and Monday as well. Enjoy the holidays!
