Kiroro Resort is wide open! Yesterdays snow allowed patrol to open the last of the courses, along with powder zone. Conditions were good, especially in powder zone, which was over waist deep in places. The top part of Expert A remains closed due to thin snow cover, with an entrance provided from Asari Dynamic course.

Another 5cm in the past 24 hours keep things fresh. The storm snow has begun to settle so untouched areas may be a little heavy, but thats a good price to pay for waist deep turns! Temperatures are between -4°C and -9°C with less wind today. Clouds are expected to stick around throughout the day, but minimal snow is forecast until tomorrow.

Tomorrow should bring another pulse of snow before things clear up for a few days.
