More of Zao is able to open up after the snow that we had yesterday (perhaps 20cm or so in total over the last 36 hours).

Now parts of Chuo, Paradise, Utopia, Uwanodai and part of the Juhyo course are skiable. Board-able, even! It's all very limited in terms of actual snow though, so do keep that in mind. But very encouraging to see happening anyway. Apart from the Ropeways, the Zao Paradaise Pair and Chuo No1 lifts are operating.

Light snow is what is happening weather wise and with the cloud visibility is poor on the mountain - all looking a bit grey and gloomy, but for people out there taking their slides I'm sure it's a much more positive feeling!

The official opening ceremony was held yesterday of course over at Base Center Jupeer. Apparently during the service a kamoshika (deer) appeared on the slopes. Surely that means we are in for a bumper season! ;)

We can expect a bit more snow today and tomorrow, so hopefully those snow depths will gradually get deeper.



Utopia - 30cm
Chuo - 45cm
Paradise - 25cm
Uwanodai - 10cm
