Good morning. 15-20cm of fresh snow is the good news to bring this morning. It is a colder morning this morning - but still not mid-winter cold, about -3C, but that new snow piled up outside is a joy to see and hopefully there might even be a bit more higher up on the mountain. Good to hear the snow moving machines all out doing their thing as well - always good to get woken up by that kind of noise. This new snowfall should make for some refreshed nice conditions out there this morning.

The snow is still falling and there's not much of a wind, but visibility on most of the mountain isn't so good.

Tomorrow might see clearer skies in the morning but moderate to heavy snow is forecast for tomorrow night and snow on Monday too. Let's hope we get another nice new layer of snow then. Monday and Tuesday should be good.

Oh one thing I meant to mention. During the month of March (only), Zao is offering a new '2 hour afternoon' lift ticket for 2500 yen - valid for 2 hours after 12:30pm.
