Good news this morning from Zao.

How would you like 20cm of fresh snowfall? You might not think it from the official numbers that the resort publishes, but yes there has been a good new layer of snow added out there by this morning. It is still snowing and poor visibility on the mountain which not much of it at all visible from down here in the village area. Decent snowfall likely tomorrow as well.

Bring it on, I say!
