Well this morning we certainly have more snow with about 25cm in the village to report this morning. It's heavy snow and really poor visibility outside this morning. Snow, cloud and fog mean that you really can't see much of anything - a day to take extra care, or as many will likely do, take an onsen! The good thing is that there isn't that much of a wind. Temperatures remain cold this morning it was about -9 degrees when I woke up and isn't whole lot above that now, while it is -14 degrees over at the Paradise slopes.

More snow forecast for tomorrow and Saturday, though it looks like today is the peak and things should be calming down as we approach the weekend and we may even get to see some blue sky! With the snowfall of late, it should be a great weekend for Zao.
