It has been a cloudy day here in Zao with light snow falling at times on the mountain, but also sometimes glimpses of the sun from behind the clouds.

We are still seeing the same lifts open (below) and the resort is still planning to have most courses open from this coming Saturday. A few lifts will be opening later but by the 22nd we should have all lifts operating as planned on the mountain.

A slightly milder few days is upcoming and early Saturday we might even see some spots of rain... hopefully snow if the temperatures can keep low.

The following lifts are operating around the mountain as previous days:

Zao Ropeway
Chuo Ropeway
Sky Cable
Chuo No1
Utopia No1
Paradise AB
Onsen No1
Yokokura No1

Chuo Area
80cm

Utopia
85cm

Paradise
95cm

Uwanodai
45cm
