It has been a cloudy day in Zao. Dark menacing looking clouds but they haven't brought us the heavy rain other places have. Strong winds though. The snow has really suddenly seemed to disappear from lower slopes the last few days in particular.... now some great big patches of ground on show. The Uwanodai and Kurobishi runs were closed yesterday actually due to the lack of snow so a slightly earlier than planned close there.

Today was the last day for a number of lifts at the resort and from tomorrow we really are onto the last bit of the season and the upper slopes only as below.

Hopefully from tomorrow we might get some brighter and calmer conditions.

The following lifts plan to remain open through until 6th May:

All the Ropeways
Chuo Number 1 Pair AB (every day)
Chuo Number 2 Pair AB (every day until 14th April, then 20th/21st April and 27th April until 6th May)
Katakai Triple (every day until 14th April, then 20th/21st April, 27th-29th April, 3rd-6th May)
Paradise Pair AB (every day until 14th April, then 20th/21st April and 27th April until 6th May)
The Yokokura Number 1 Pair AB will remain open as long as there's enough snow.
