Good morning from Zao, where the resort has opened once again and the lifts are moving and will be moving from now until Golden Week.

It's a cloudy morning, 7 degrees and a there's a moderate-strong wind. Rain is likely as well later on I'm sorry to report though tomorrow looks like it should be clearer conditions.

Regarding the closing of the resort, I am hearing the last day will be 5th May rather than 8th May as I suggested yesterday. Anyway whatever we have 2 weeks of Zao to enjoy until the end of the season.

There are some patches of ground starting to show on lower slopes of the resort, but there is still plenty up top.
