It is a mild and cloudy morning in Zao.

I'm a bit put out with the official report saying "snow" this morning because it is raining, lightly, as I write this. At +4 degrees, it seems unlikely that we can expect much in the way of snow though of course it may be at the top of the mountain - but it will be wet snow. It is the warmest day of the year so far though the good news is that the temperatures should drop as the day progresses and hopefully it will be snowing by the end of the day and into tomorrow as a colder stretch of days approaches.

So not the best of days to be out there but after the run we have had a blip is acceptable - as long as the fresh snow comes soon!

Official snow depths on the resort:

Chuo area:
170cm

Paradise area:
200cm

Utopia area:
200cm
