Well that was fun! The resort opened for the weekend and a fair few people came out to play. It was a mix of fine sunny and cloudy weather for the most part. The sun is out this morning and it is fairly warm.

We might get some heavy snow tomorrow on the mountain as colder temperatures and more winter-like conditions return, but things should clear up later on in the week.

Zao Onsen ski resort is closed again today, but it will re-open on Saturday 23rd April and be open from then until the end of Golden Week.
