It isn't quite as cold this morning as it was yesterday, though it is still -6 degrees in the village. The snow has continued falling here making for continued excellent conditions on the slopes. So another 30cm or so of snow I would say once again. It is still quite windy out there so some lifts are either moving slower or in the case of the ropeways not taking as many people up at once.

But in terms of snow quality, the last few weeks really have been top quality.

People coming back from a day out there have also been commenting on how uncrowded the slopes are and it's true. Weekdays there really are no issues with crowds and sometimes you almost seem to have a run to yourself. With conditions like this, could things be any better?

Similar snowy conditions are lined up on the forecast for most of the week.

The Zao Ropeway will be operating again tonight to take people up the mountain to view the Snow Monsters. After tonight the next time will be on Saturday and from then on daily until 28th February.
