It is another very cold morning - I would say one of the coldest so far - and outside the thermometer in the village here is saying -10 degrees. Just a few cm of fresh snow on the ground since yesterday.

After the clearer skies and fine weather of yesterday, the clouds are back this morning and snow is falling.... nothing major and there's not much of a wind but like I said it is very cold and feels it.

Things may very well clear up later on today and we might see more fine conditions early tomorrow morning but the snow will likely be back by the end of tomorrow. It's going to stay cold though, so be prepared!

You might have seen it on the national news, but lots of places are seeing heavy snowfall this season in Japan. There's certainly more snow lower down the mountain than there usually is. So take care with the traffic if you are on your way to Zao for the weekend, it might be a good idea to take a bit of extra time to get here. Once you get here though, you will have some very fine conditions awaiting you!
