Good morning from Zao.

The sun is out. There are blue skies. It's a beautiful morning. If the forecasts are correct, there's a lot more of this in the coming week as well. And those forecasts still show a steady warming up as well into the middle of next week.

If you are in for some spring skiing or snowboarding, now is a good time.
