Good morning from Zao. Calm again, cloudy again, cold again. No new snow though.

Snow is expected today though and through the weekend too, along with potentially strong winds that may well get to affect some lift operations... need to keep an eye on that. Should be able to report fresh conditions for the beginning of the weekend though.

The Zao Juhyo Festival is on for tomorrow, Saturday 31st January. From 7:15pm until 8:30pm at the stage area by the Base Center over at Uwanodai - worth a look if you are in Zao tomorrow. Fingers crossed weather will be ok.
