Good morning from the village here at the base of Zao and some new snowfall to report, another 5cm since yesterday.

Temperatures remaining cold for now and just cloudy conditions at the start of the day.

Weather conditions are set to clear and calm properly starting from tomorrow leaving us with lots of clear skies and sun. Warmth too and a real spring feel in the air seems inevitable come Monday/Tuesday.

Still, feels more winter like this morning and conditions should be very good. Who knows it the snow of the last few days will be the last significant snow of the season or not. Just in case, best to get the boots and strap the board on and get out to enjoy it.
