Good morning from Zao.

Mostly cloudy skies this morning over Zao though thinner in places and perhaps things might clear up for a while.

I expect things to be quieter than over the weekend, though it is a national holiday today and so things should be more crowded than usual for a Monday.

Rain is still lurking there on the forecast for later on and tonight - it's followed by snow from tomorrow.

All lifts and courses open.
