No new snow to report this morning but I can report that I can actually see the sun! It hasn't happened that much this season until now but it has been a fine start to the day in Zao. There is still a lot of cloud around but blue patches visible - it is bright and the sun shining through at the moment.

The forecasts seem to be really all over the place at the moment if you ask me though - so all I can say is that over the next few days it looks like we can expect a mix of cloud / sun / snow. Conditions are changing quickly each day and it is difficult to predict what is coming up the next day! According to one local forecast we are going to see heavy snow tonight... so we'll just have to see.

Whatever, it is a fine start to the day. No fresh snow but there's still a lot of untouched out there as well as the groomers which are also generally in fine condition.
