Good morning from Zao Onsen and it's a chilly and cloudy one. A few cm of snow since yesterday but not snowing at the moment. The clouds are sticking around the mountain, but decent visibility on the slopes... at the moment I can just about see the top of the mountain at times from base.

Oh an exciting event to tell you about --- "1000 People Bingo" on a special stage area up in the Paradise part of the resort at 11am, Saturday 12th. Prizes are to be won, if playing bingo with 999 other people isn't enough fun for you! Apparently, if I am reading this right, the first 1000 people to turn up will receive a special bingo card to play. What more encouragement do you need to start early? ;)

Snowfall is due later on tomorrow into Thursday. Lots, please.
