Since yesterday we have seen more snowfall and I would say up to 15cm or so in places. It has eased off this morning and it is generally cloudy with a few breaks in those clouds over the village, but I hear still snowing and poorer visibility up at the top of the resort. Right now I can just about see the top through the clouds up there.

A number of lifts will be having their last runs this coming weekend at Zao and I will post that information later on today or tomorrow morning.

Official snow depths (27th March 12)
Utopia - 260cm
Chuo - 220cm
Paradise - 240cm
Uwanodai - 165cm

Operating lifts (27th March 12)
All Ropeways (Skycable, Zao Chuo Ropeway, Zao Ropeway) operating.
Most lifts remain operating.
All the runs at Zao scheduled to be open.
