Yesterday the official opening ceremony of the resort took place over at Uwanodai in the snow. The resort is reporting a fresh 5cm of snow but not that much down here in the village since my last report.

It's a cold morning and light snow falling still but we are now expecting conditions to clear and generally weather conditions to be calmer at least for the first part of the week. Decent snowfall perhaps making a new appearance at the end of the week.

Lifts that are currently operating:

- Ropeways
- Onsen Number 1 pair lift
- Chuo Number 1 pair AB
- Utopia Number 2 pair

Official snow depths (Sunday 6th December 15):

Utopia: 70cm
Chuo: 60cm
Paradise: -cm
Uwanodai: 30cm

6 day Zao Onsen snow and weather forecast
