After that bad start to the day yesterday the rain did turn into snow later on and by the time the nighta was in full swing there was perhaps 10cm or so of fresh snow on the slopes - a relief to everyone of course.

This morning there is perhaps 5cm or so more snow to report on top of that and right now it is just cloudy in Zao. Good news is that it is also back to being cold, and currently -6 in the village and minus double figures in places up on the mountain.

There are some fairly icy conditions under that new layer of snow so keep that in mind.

So cloudy today but fairly bright and good visibility. Looks like we will see snow clouds with us over the weekend but not blizzard-like conditions. May well break and just be cloudy and even a chance of the sun appearing... we shall see.

Official snow depths on the resort:

Chuo area:
180cm

Paradise area:
200cm

Utopia area:
200cm
