I bring good news - most of Zao is now open! There are a few areas and one or two lifts that are not yet moving but generally most of the mountain is now skiable - and on some very fine snow as well. It's still not mid-season deep but the last few days has seen enough to allow the runs to be open and as I mentioned the quality of snow is good.

The snow is still coming down though visibility is fair, and should continue into tomorrow as well. It's also Zao-like cold with temperatures down to -10 on the mountain. A good day to ride on the mountain and then heat up in the onsen later on.

Longer range, the snow clouds seem set to be over Zao for the next few days perhaps until around Wednesday so each day should see a topup keeping conditions good.
