I have snow to report in Zao this morning and news of more of the resort opening up.

Most of the Chuo area is now open with only the Diamond No1 pair not moving.

At Utopia, the No1 and No2 pair lifts are moving

Over at Uwanodai, the Onsen No1 pair lift is also operating this morning meaning that part of the Uenodai slopes are open.

So things are looking better, even though snow depth levels are still pretty low. But it is great to see more areas opening and people coming to enjoy Zao.

It seems that the snow will ease off as the day moves on and tomorrow will likely be much clearer. Look towards Tuesday night into Wednesday and Thursday for some very positive looking snow forecast. Perhaps that will be the one!!
