It was a very cold early morning here but one of those beauties when the sun is out from the start of the day. No wind and everything is calm and peaceful.

Different forecasts tell us varying things for tomorrow and Friday - choose between rain and snow. After that, we are expecting clearer skies again for the weekend.

The areas of Zao Onsen that are open at the moment are part of the Uwanodai, Chuo and Utopia areas of the resort.
