Morning all. It is a cloudy start to the day in Zao.

Another cold morning (aren't they mostly cold?) at -9 degrees early on outside my room and just a sprinkling of snow to report since yesterday perhaps 1cm or so. Nothing major. Visibility is good especially on the lower half of the mountain, just some clouds covering the top at the moment as I write this but it's quite fast-moving clouds out there this morning.

The next few days still has the forecast telling us to expect a mix of cloud, sun and light snow showers. No major snowfall expected until the weekend and until then we should be seeing milder conditions as well.

Utopia - 170cm
