Yesterday the weather conditions did clear up somewhat but overnight we have a sprinkling of new snow to report. Just a sprinkling nothing more, but it is a fairly cold start to the day in Zao at -2 and a temperature of around -9 at the top of the resort.

Blue skies early on and the sun is out and so it will be a fine day to be out on the slopes and it seems likely that tomorrow the weather conditions will be quite similar.
