Clouds still cover the mountain here at Zao this morning with more light snow falling from time to time.

There is just a bit of snow to report this morning, so the snow that was falling yesterday didn't really amount to much in terms of new cover. There's less wind this morning, just a slight wind out there, and not as cold as it was yesterday. Earlier on before I let the thermometer said -6 degrees and the resort is reporting temperatures of -12 up at Utopia but around -6 nearer the village.

Snow is forecast tomorrow night but it looks like there is a chance of clearer conditions over the weekend during the daytimes with the sun about to show up as well? We'll see. Would be good for the weekend visitors to get a good view of the scenery around Zao.
