Wow what a night!

After a rather intense snow storm through the night, Kiroro has woken up to some serious new snow. 40cm of fresh has been reported but by the look of what its like around the Mountain Center thats probably a bit on the light side!

That takes the snow base up to 140cm at the base of the mountain and it puts the base at the peak to 2 Meters. Yeeeeha!

Once again those pictures down below should do the talking for it all.

The grooming and snow clearing team have been working hard this morning to clear snow for access, and its looking like more lifts are going to open then first anticipated.

Nagamine No.1, Center Express, Yoichi No.1, and the Family Lift are scheduled to open this morning so get in quick because the forecast is for the wind to pick up again this afternoon to severe gales, so no guarantees that those lifts will be able to safely operate for the entire duration of the day but should definitely be able to get in a few runs this morning.

Enjoy.
