It is a wet and rainy morning here in Zao and we may see rainfall at times during the day today and into tomorrow too.

Clearer weather is forecast beyond that from Thursday when it may start getting a bit warmer again. Right now it still feels unseasonably cold!

The remaining snow is getting less by the day but somehow the resort is keeping those three areas open and will do so until Monday, the end of Golden Week and the ski season...
