Hello from Zao and I don't have any new snow to report to you this morning.

It's cloudy and looks like higher areas of the mountain are once again going to be having limited visibility.

Over by the Kids Park at the Omori car park area today there's an interesting looking event with various resort snow machines on show. The boy in me who has always liked big diggers and other big machinery is interested to go take a look at that.

It's also the day when kids can ride the lifts for free, so expect to see lots of young ones out there!

The forecast says a chance of some light snow tonight and then more around Tuesday and towards the end of the week. That last lot shows the most potential to bring us a decent fresh layer of snow.
