Z50 Weather Resistant - Specifics

The Z50 seems to be a perfect size (light weight too) for hiking. Many here have already established that as a perfect travel companion. But - due to (as I understand it) not being "weather resistant/sealed" - how well is it really suited for hiking - in the mountains?  In the summer you can run into afternoon thunderstorms and rain showers and obviously in the winter - a snowy environment.

Anyone used it "in/during a snow event"?

Thoughts or experiences under related circumstances would be appreciated.

I own both Nikon and Olympus and love them both.  For this purpose (above) I am drawn to the Z50 (as I also have a Z6), but am also drawn to the OMD EM5 M3. Both small and light (not too much difference in size and weight of the bodies), but the EM5 is weather sealed.

Thanks for thoughts,
