Apologies for the lack of reports over the previous days.

The stormy weather remains at Kiroro. With strong northerly winds keeping the Gondola and Asari #2 from opening. All other lifts are due to open, but it will be windy up there!

Kiroro has received a good overnight snowfall, with the wind moving it around. Expect deep wind drifts in sheltered areas. This is demonstrated by one snow gauge at the base measuring 21cm and another measuring 30cm.

The wind is forecast to remain steady today, it wont take much to put Nagamine #2 on hold so check the website for live lift status.
