Good morning from Zao.

Can't see much of anything outside at the moment as we seem to be completely covered in cloud.

Care needed, be sure you know where you are going this morning.

There's a chance of a bit more snow today but the skies should be clearer over the weekend - and more snow back on the forecast for later Monday into Tuesday and more later in the week so regular top-ups looking likely.

---

All lifts apart from the following appear to be operating this morning:

Paradise Number 3 pair
Diamond Number 1 pair
Karamatsu pair (closed now for the season)

All courses apart from Kotan should be open.

---

Official snow depths (as published by the resort itself):
Summit - 150cm
Paradise - 220cm
Chuo - 220cm
Utopia - 180cm
Uwanodai - 130cm
Yokokura - 125cm
