A few new cm of snow this morning in Zao village, but it has been a very fine day here. Blue skies and the sun out. Very nice. And more than that on the slopes, even if the official numbers haven't budged (sorry!) It was a cold start but it got quite mild during the day before starting to get cold again this evening.

The snow clouds should be back with us perhaps even tonight but definitely by tomorrow night and from then until early next week it looks like it should be snow, snow and then some more snow. It's going to get cold too up on the mountain so plan accordingly.

Official snow depths (21st Dec 11)

Utopia - 50cm
Chuo - 55cm
Paradise - 50cm
Uwanodai - 25cm
