Quite strong winds blowing this morning in Zao and it's a fairly mild start to the day. We have a bit of snow to report actually - just a sprinkling overnight really, perhaps up to 1cm in places. It is not snowing now though, and is generally just cloudy.

Strong winds are likely to continue today and may be enough to affect lift operations once the resort opens... at the time of writing unclear, so you'll need to check with the resort if you are here. Light snow showers likely over today and tomorrow, though probably nothing significant in terms of snowfall. Tomorrow and Monday though will probably be a bit colder than today.

This weekend is the last two days of the season when children can ski for just 1000 yen. So we can probably expect it to be fairly busy out there with families.

Have fun!
