Good morning from Zao.

Monday once again. And after a busy weekend, things are quieter once more.

It's a mix of cloud and some parts clearer conditions this morning - at base anyway. I can see the webcam for Chuo area is looking 'limited visibility'. Perhaps it will clear up there as the day goes on.

A cold start to the day.

Sunny skies forecast tomorrow and Wednesday along with some milder conditions, but we should be back to snow by the end of the week.

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

Paradise Number 3 pair
Karamatsu pair
