What date is it again? 13th March? Just had to check! This morning we are really back to mid-winter conditions in Zao and I would say we have had getting on for what must be 40-50cm of fresh snow. Actually, come to think of it, while it is cold at about -4 degrees it isn't the crazy cold we get right in the middle of the winter but 40-50cm of snow and I don't really care what the temperature is doing!

Poor visibility this morning but the forecast is for conditions to clear up later on and while we may see light snow on and off over the next few days the trend is for warmer weather and clearer skies, especially as we get into and beyond Friday.

I have checked the official numbers below and for now they haven't changed - but this new snow I see outside is definitely real!

Official snow depths (13th March 12)
Utopia - 245cm
Chuo - 210cm
Paradise - 245cm
Uwanodai - 170cm
