Good morning from Zao.

Yesterday did indeed turn into a very fine day with clear brilliant blue skies.

This morning, back to cloudier conditions. As of 9am the resort is reporting a temperature of -5C up top and +2C at base areas. So we're still experiencing warmer than usual temps right now. If the forecast is right the next decent cm of snow to arrive should be around Saturday.

In the meantime kind of icy conditions in the morning.
