A few more cm of fresh snowfall this morning to report from Zao Onsen. At the moment it isn't snowing but it's very cloudy with generally poor visibility. It's quite windy as well, though lift operations do not seem to be affected at all.

Snow due every day over the next week, with particularly heavy snowfall likely on New Years Day along with strong winds if the forecast turns out to be correct. Might be a good excuse to party that bit more tomorrow night and then have a good soak the next morning in an onsen.

For now though, it's busy here in Zao. Very nice snow conditions. Enjoy.
