Hello from Zao.

It's a mild morning and it's raining. :(

The top of the resort is reporting snow this morning but all other areas are reporting rain. And yes, it's raining.

As you can see from the webcam image below though visibility is pretty good this morning if you don't mind the wet.

We're expecting it to be snowing later on today and into tomorrow too, and there's a chance of some stronger winds blowing around.

All lifts apart from the following appear to be operating today:

Paradise Number 3 pair
Karamatsu pair

All courses apart from Kotan should be open.

Summit - 145cm
Paradise - 220cm
