Good morning from Zao.

It's another pretty cold morning here and generally just cloudy. Might there be snow coming?

A national holiday too so it should be somewhat busier than a normal mid-week day.

And also, from today, cheaper 'spring season' lift tickets are available. For example, an adult 1 day lift ticket will now cost 4100 yen instead of the normal 5000 yen.
