5-10cm or so of fresh snow in Zao since yesterday as the snow continues to fall.... not heavy snow but it is still coming down and early on this morning there is fairly low visibility as the mountain is covered in cloud.

It is noticeably warmer this morning. Having said that, it's still below zero! But definitely milder and we can expect milder conditions over the coming few days.

The few lifts that were not moving before today are now doing so (apart from, it seems, two pair lifts) but the mountain is now pretty much all open.

The forecast has light snow for the next few days but fine weather likely from Friday afternoon and perhaps over the weekend.

More people in the village this morning due to the fact that it is a national holiday.... not enough to cause congestion on the slopes though.

Official snow depths on the resort:

Chuo area:

Paradise area:

Utopia area:
