It was an unexpected heavy snow condition - having stayed in the tropics ie sunny Singapore we have never enjoyed the tremendous powdery soft fall of snow!! An amazing n unforgettable experience though we do travel extensively (almost half the world). This was magical as such I am bringing my family esp my 84 year old mom back to Zao from 25-28/12/14 and we are family of 8 persons. Not easy to fix a schedule but we managed n now very much look forward to having more fun in special snow n hot spring baths.
