A hazy but bright morning in Zao. 2 degrees in the village at the moment but by this afternoon we are probably looking at a temp. of around 10 degrees. Rain likely tomorrow unfortunately, even higher up on the upper slopes.

It looks like the resort will now be open until Sunday 8th May. There has been conflicting information over the last week or so as to whether the resort would open until the 5th or the 8th May, but the resort now has the 8th May on their official site and so surely that's the end of the speculation!


Official snow depths as of 26th April:

Utopia - 190cm
Paradise - 180cm
Chuo - 150cm
Uwanodai - 45cm


Saturday 23rd April until 8th May (8:30am - 5pm):

The following courses will be opened:

The courses will be serviced by the following lifts:

The above information is subject to change. Spring lift ticket rates will apply.
