We are still waiting for that big snowfall but for today we have the the Zao Paradise pair lift moving. It's a bit wet down at base but snow is falling higher up on the mountain and we do have snow forecast for today and tomorrow, so lets hope that we might get enough cm to open up more of the skijo for the coming weekend.

Tomorrow there will be the official opening ceremony for the Zao Onsen - that will be held at 11am at the base of the Uwanodai area of the resort.
