There is no new snow to report this morning in Zao and it is -4 degrees in the village early this morning and not much of a wind at all so it doesn't quite feel as cold as it has been. Perhaps there is some light snow falling from time to time higher up on the hill. The mountain is still shrouded in cloud though so the top isn't visible from the village.

It looks like we might have more of a chance of seeing more of the mountain over the coming days. While it will remain likely to be able to snow fall at any time, perhaps Tuesday and Wednesday are looking positive for clearer skies in the region.

The regular topups are always welcome of course and conditions on the slopes remain excellent. There are going to be more people out there today and tomorrow of course by being the weekend and so more competition for those fresh tracks, but the mountain is big and so I'm sure that they will still be easy to find.

Have a good weekend.
