Good morning from Zao.

And do I have news for you.

OK so yesterday there was 12cm of snow that I measured and this morning there's another 16cm. So that's 28cm that I am adding to the report today. Mindful of the day, can I just say that this really isn't a joke! The fresh snow has given the dirty looking snow a nice clean new layer which is very pleasing and the folks here to ski and board should be very pleased with their lucky timing.

The snow will probably ease off later but there is still snow on the forecast over the next few days. So there might well be more cm to report.

:)
