Good morning from Zao.

Actually, it's not very good.

It's warm, wet and windy. Yikes.

Temps in the positive, rain falling at base, snow higher up but being blown around by winds. Not nice.

These conditions are affecting quite a few lifts at the start of the day. If you are the kind of person who likes these conditions, do check with the resort for the latest to see what is open.

I think many will choose to soak in an onsen. (Remember to put the little towel on your head!) ;)

Fingers crossed conditions will be nicer tomorrow.
