A lovely morning in Zao. Very cold at about -8 degrees this morning, but lots of blue sky with some fast-moving cloud making things look all the more dramatic with shadows casting down on the slopes. So good visibility and only a slight wind this morning. There is just a few cm of fresh snow to report.

Temperatures are set to keep very low pretty much for the rest of the week according to the forecast with snow likely every day. Perhaps not huge amounts but regular top-ups to our base.

The lower slopes are noticably less busy this morning as many people have either left or making preparations to leave after their new year break in Zao. Hopefully they took some great memories back with them.

Official snow depths (3rd January 12)
Utopia - 135cm
Chuo - 110cm
Paradise - 125cm
Uwanodai - 90cm
