So we did get some more snow overnight after the snow clouds moved in later in the day yesterday. About 10cm or so I would say in the village. The clouds have been moving on though as early on the sun is out and it is a fine morning. It's keeping very cold as well and right now -8 degrees in the village.

Looks like it won't last though with heavy snow forecast before the end of the day and snow to fall tomorrow. Things might clear up somewhat by Sunday but come ready for cold and snowy conditions if you are visiting Zao this weekend.

Tomorrow night sees the 'snow and fire' event in Zao (7:30pm-8:30pm, Uenodai). With demonstrations from ski and snowboard instructors, performances and fireworks, along with the traditional festival feeling, it should be fun. With that and the Ice Monsters lightup - and of course the really good snow conditions - it is a good weekend to be in Zao.

Official snow depths on the resort:
