Not a huge amount of snow since yesterday and probably no more than 5-10cm on the slopes. Down in the village just a few cm in the end but it is snowing again this morning and cloudy/foggy out there with poor visibility. A moderate wind but all lifts are operating as planned.

It's the annual big festival in Zao Onsen this coming Saturday. Snow statues are in the process of being build around the village in preparation for the event. There'll be torchlit skiing, performances, fireworks and, as they say, much more. The main event is from 7:30pm until 8:30pm in the Uwanodai course area with a special stage area made just for the event. Should be fun.
