Well, yesterday I said that we were expecting clearer conditions for today... but it's not clearer at all. In fact, I can't see much of the mountain at all. Pretty similar to yesterday in that respect. A bit more snowfall as well to keep the slopes topped-up. I was out there yesterday and found some really nice conditions in many parts of the resort. Utopia and Paradise were especially good.

It might get slightly milder tomorrow and Friday but into Saturday we can expect a decent amount of fresh snowfall again and snow falling over the weekend too. Should be a good one!

A few lifts seems to have closed for the season now including the Kurohime No2 quad, Utopia No1 pair and Onsen No3 Parallel AB. This doesn't really affect the course area of Zao that is open though and we still have tons of snow around of course.... it's just one of the things that happens when we get into proper "spring ski" mode.

Official snow depths (21st March 12)
Utopia - 260cm
Chuo - 220cm
Paradise - 240cm
Uwanodai - 165cm

Operating lifts (21st March 12)
