Just a bit more snow since yesterday in Zao, but we're not complaining after the last few days. Paradise area now reporting close to a metre of snow. Still not deep but nice snow out there, I can report --- was out there for a few turns myself this morning. It's still snowing as well with poor visibility out on the mountain this afternoon. Really coming down nicely actually.

The snow is still due to ease off soon though and going into the weekend it should be less cold and we might well get to see the sun... much less chance of snowfall.

Today the following lifts are operating around the mountain as previous days:

Zao Ropeway
Chuo Ropeway
Sky Cable
Chuo No1
Utopia No1
Paradise AB
Onsen No1
Yokokura No1

Chuo Area
80cm

Utopia
85cm

Paradise
95cm

Uwanodai
45cm
