Hello from Zao village and it's going to be another mild day here.

Unfortunately we had some rain fall on us last night but for now it's just cloudy, with a lot of fog (gas) hanging around the mountain making visibility limited in places.

The weather is due to take a turn though starting today. Colder, windier.... and snowier. Is that a word?! Whatever, while we may see some more rain in the village, it's set to be snowing hopefully as we get into tomorrow to be followed by a few days of winter like conditions. Strong winds may cause a problem for some lifts.

Anyway will update you tomorrow with the latest on what may well be the last proper blast of winter for the season.
