So yesterdat was the last day of the season for a bunch of lifts on the mountain here at Zao and some more finishing up at the end of tomorrow... details of the lifts that remain open are below. Still pretty much all of the resort areas remain open with lots of snow still around.

Cloudy conditions this morning that will perhaps improve as the day goes on.

Not many people around either at the moment.

A bit warmer tomorrow and then colder again on Wednesday when we may even get a bit of fresh snow - higher up anyway, likely rain down below here in the village.
