Apologies for the late report today.

My my, it is cold. Very very cold. Zao is always cold in winter of course but this morning was the coldest for a while I can remember. The thermometer said -11. It has just cloudy this morning in the village but clouds covering the top of the mountain and light snow falling up there apparently... I haven't been up myself. Fairly strong winds on the mountain as well. The conditions of the morning have obviously put some people off as it is very quiet out there on many of the slopes by the looks of things.

Right now actually things do seem to be clearing up a bit - there are breaks in the cloud and even the sun shining through in some part casting some shadows on the slopes and it fairly bright.

All of the resort remains open and top snow conditions.

The Snow Monsters are coming on well and looking good up there.
