Good morning from Zao.

It's a cloudy start to the day with what looks like limited visibility up on the mountain.

It's a cold start to the day as well, and still only -3C here at base and minus double digits higher up.

I have just a few cm of fresh snow to report this morning but hopefully I will be reporting some good numbers tomorrow morning. After tomorrow the forecast shows some clearer skies and milder temperatures as well early next week and not much in terms of snowfall...

To a snowy day today!
