After the clearer conditions we got yesterday this morning we are back to darker cloudier clouds hiding most of the mountain here in Zao. It's -3 degrees and just a slight dusting of snow overnight to report. Light snow falling in places at the moment, not the kind that will be bringing us a new deep layer of snow, and mainly just cloudy with fairly limited visibility out there.

There's a moderate wind but all lifts on the resort are operating as normal.

Next snowfall that will bring us new cm due around Wednesday. Until then cloudy skies, chance of the sun making appearances and/or light snow showers.
