Back to cloudy conditions here in Zao this morning. Visibility isn't that bad though as I can see the top of the mountain from the base here, though it is at times being covered by the moving clouds.

Colder as well this morning. It was -6 degrees when I got up earlier and should stay cold but it will be early next week before it gets back to normal cold levels for mid-winter. With the recent weather conditions the slopes are getting in need of some freshness - things were getting a bit crusty out there in places yesterday. More snow please! We might get a sprinkling later today after which looks like snow will be with us tomorrow night. Onegai shimasu!
