Good news this morning.

Over 20cm of new snow at village level and well over 30cm up top this morning in Zao. Zao is never foward at pushing big snow depth numbers, but we are up to 2m at Utopia this morning.

There's a moderate wind out there and visibility is poor but for snow conditions this morning will be rather good out there. Get wrapped up and have fun.

Lifts seem to be open as planned on the mountain.

From tonight, the evening Light Up operations for the Zao Ropeway become daily and run through until 3rd March. The Ropeway starts it's evening work at 5pm and the last one going up is at 7:50pm. It can get very cold up there so go prepared.
