Good morning from Zao.

Cloudy and some light snow on the mountain early on (bit of fresh up there?) but it looks like some clearer conditions are on the cards for later on.

There's a bit more light snow currently on the forecast over the next few days, but I wouldn't expect much at all. It is keeping cold though which is good for the snow conditions. (Obviously we always want a bit more snow).
