Good morning from Kiroro!

There is 14 cm of new snow at the base and 22 cm at the top this morning, bringing the depth at the base to 230 cm and 340 cm at the top. It should continue snowing throughout the day with heavy snow this evening leading to likely over 20 cm of new snow at the base over the next 24 hours. It looks like it will continue snowing through tomorrow and then be clear Monday and Tuesday with snow returning by Tuesday night.

Winds will continue to be light to moderate through tomorrow, calming down by tomorrow evening for calm days Monday and Tuesday. Yesterday the snow was a bit heavy and wind-affected in some areas, but there was still plenty of fresh lines to be had right outside the resort boundaries even in the afternoon.

Kiroro Now ski lift operation notes:

All weekend lifts operating normally.
