A cloudy start to the day in Zao this morning, not so cold (*for Zao!) just around 0 degrees. Clouds look like they are threatening snow though. I dare you, clouds! No wind and all feels calm.

About the same with the resort this morning so nothing new to report really.

Sun expected tomorrow and a bit of a rise in temperatures. Colder over the coming weekend though with heavy snow possible - going to have to look out for strong winds too. Stormy conditions ahead!
