Strong winds and sleet falling yesterday in Zao as temperatures keep cold. There's a lot of moving snow being done as the resort does it's best to remain open until Monday. Those numbers before are a bit misleading - they are the official numbers but in places it's down to 0cm with some narrow courses. Hanging on there!

Generally clear weather conditions forecast from tomorrow to Monday.

The Zao Echo Line road opened for the first time late last week, always a sign of the end of the ski season.

Have a good 'second bit of Golden Week'!

The following lifts plan to remain open through until 6th May:

All the Ropeways
Chuo Number 1 Pair AB
Utopia Number 2 Pair
Chuo Number 2 Pair AB
Katakai Triple (3rd to 6th)
Paradise Pair AB

Official snow depths:

Chuo Area
50cm

Utopia
