Zao is an all-season resort with hiking during the summertime and skiing during the wintertime. Its famous juhyo, or silver frosts, are natural works of art created by the winter wind when the cold wind from Siberia hits the Asahi mountain range and rapidly ascends, changing it into a cold moist mist. It freezes in matter of seconds when it touches the Japanese spruce trees in Zao leaving the frosted trees as giant ‘chunks’ covered with snow.
