The forecast was right. It's a sunny morning here in Zao and not as cold. Not much wind at all, and very good visibility all over the mountain. A fine spring day skiing on offer I reckon.

Weekend weather should be generally fine. It's forecast to remain fairly cold (colder than it will be today) with a mix of decent conditions but the chance of light snow at times. So somewhat mixed forecasts going on there. Stronger winds likely tomorrow though, hopefully won't mess around with lifts.

As below some lifts are entering their last weekend of the season.
