Things have been somewhat calmer this morning in Zao. Another 10-15cm of snow has fallen since yesterday but since earlier this morning it has been mostly cloudy with a bit of light snow falling.

We have quickly changing visibility conditions out there today - earlier on it was clearer but as I write this the top 2/3 of the mountain is once again completely covered in cloud.

Basically similar kind of conditions are forecast for the next few days. Cloud, light snow, light winds. Doesn't look like the sun will be starring much this weekend. But the snow conditions are really nice out there at the moment so lots to enjoy.

Official snow depths (6th January 12)
Utopia - 155cm
Chuo - 140cm
Paradise - 150cm
Uwanodai - 110cm
