Just another few cm of snow this morning in Zao and it is snowing now.

Snow on and off forecast for the weekend really, with the chance of some guest appearances by the sun. Hard to read. The only thing that looks sure is the continued cold temperatures, it's not going to warm up much at all right through into next week. That's a good thing of course, just come prepared.

Peak season weekend means a busy Zao and so as always if you are going to be visiting a good early start is highly recommended if possible.
