About 30cm of new snowfall on the ground this morning in Zao and some more snow falling today down to village along with a moderate wind. Not the coldest of days but colder than yesterday and well under zero and keeping the snow in good conditions. The snow depth numbers from around the mountain starting to look much healthier as well.

Tomorrow should start off fairly calm but the snow clouds should be back with us soon after.
