The sun is out, blue skies and some fluffy clouds in the sky - and lots of smiles this morning as Zao Onsen opens up for the weekend. It's warm and more of the same tomorrow. Nice weather for Zao's comeback!

Today and tomorrow the Chuo, Paradise, Ohira and Takatori courses are open and serviced by the Chuo Ropeway, Sky Cable Gondola, Chuo No1 Pair, Chuo No2 Pair and Paradise Pair lifts.

Anyway, I am going out there to enjoy it. Have a good weekend.
