Too cold to snow? I don't know the science (or not!) behind that story I have heard this morning from a few people, but it sure is cold this morning. -11 degrees it was in the vilalge before I got out earlier on this morning and I doubt it has 'warmed up' that much either. The top of the resort recorded nearly -15 degrees as well this morning.

There is just a few cm of new snow to report this moring in the village and it has been just cloudy this morning. The lower slopes of the ski area visible from base but anything higher up is covered in cloud so there will be poor visibility out on the upper slopes of Zao today.

Basically the forecast tells us to expect snowfall over the next 6+ days along with cold temperatures. Come prepared. The new snow will all be welcome though as a nice topup on the slopes to keep conditions good.
