It is another cold and cloudy morning here in Zao and I have perhaps about 5-6cm of snow to report. Light snow is apparently falling higher up but here in the village as I write this -- just cloudy. There is just a light wind and fair visibility on the mountain, although everything looks a shade of grey/silver/white this morning and not a lot of contrast.

The latest forecast tells us that snow should set in tonight and be with us (perhaps on and off) basically into next week along with cold mid-winter temperatures.

Wrap up well! If you are coming for the weekeend you should be rewarded with some great conditions and the 'Juhyo' Ice Monsters are looking good as well now.

The Ropeway/Gondola to the top of the resort are operating every evening now until the end of February. At the top you can get some fantastic views of floodlit 'Juhyo' which makes for a unique experience. Please note that you need to buy a seperate ticket to make use of this service - the ski lift ticket or nighta tickets for skiing are ot valid.
