Good morning from Zao. It is just cloudy this morning with a moderate wind.

We have Utopia and Parasise pair lifts moving today, but they will be closed again tomorrow as we wait for now snow for the resort to open up more terrain and lifts - it's all still limited to top areas at the moment. Down at base there is still only a thin layer of snow, getting to be patchy in places.

Just taking a look at the forecasts. It's not looking very promising at all for this coming week - it should keep quite cold but there's not much snow lined up through until at least the end of the week.

I'll update the report again in a few days with the latest.

Official snow depths (1st December 13)
Utopia: 40cm
Chuo: 40cm
Paradise: 40cm
Uwanodai: -cm

Operating lifts (1st December 13)
All Ropeways (Skycable, Zao Chuo Ropeway, Zao Ropeway) operating.
Chuo Number 1 Pair
Zao Paradise Pair
Utopia Number 1 Pair
