Welcome back to the Kiroro Now reports and apologies for the late start.

Since I'm starting late, the total observed snowfall at base has been added to the section with backdated reports.

The snow depth at the base on opening was 15cm, and it is currently 70cm.

Currently, it's moderately snowing, and there has been 40cm of new snowfall at the base and 50cm at the peak in the last 24 hours, with another 44cm predicted for the next 24 hours. Winds at the base are light to moderate, with variable visibility conditions. Winds at the peak are moderate, with a chance of exceeding 54 km/h (15 m/s) during the day.

While the Asari Area and Yoichi Area peaks are open, courses are limited, and the Nagamine Area lifts are not yet in operation.

I have heard reports of heavy snowfall on roads, so please be mindful of winter driving conditions and road closures until clearing is completed.
