Good morning from Zao.

I have some new snow to report this morning, just 4-5cm here at base.

The snow clouds have moved on now though and it's a mix of cloud and blue sky above us currently.

Snow might be back before the day ends though and a chance of snow showers during the day tomorrow as well, though nothing major. Looks like it will be slightly warmer over the weekend but hopefully not by too much.

The 'Juhyo Lightup' evening ropeway service is currently operating and will be until Sunday 28th February, from 5pm until 9pm. The last ropeway goes up at 7:50pm. Please note that you need to buy a separate ticket to use this service - it is not included in any of the normal ski lift tickets.
