New later we have with over 10cm here in the village this morning and I am hearing up to 20cm of new snow on the upper areas of the mountain. It is cold, snowy and windy this morning in Zao with visibility on the mountain pretty poor on all but the very low runs. All lifts seem to be operating as planned though, but you might expect some more exposed lifts to be running at reduced speed this morning.

Clearer skies likely tomorrow.

Have a good weekend.
