It is looking good for a white christmas at Kiroro. Today we have 20cms of new snow, and with more currently falling the conditions will be good out there all day.

The wind has eased up from the previous few days, allowing Nagamine No.2 to open for the first time in 4 days. The opening is delayed until 10am but once open there will be some good riding in the sheltered spots.
Unfortunately the wind still remains too strong to open the Gondola or Asari No.2. However things are forecast to continue to improve and tomorrow looks like winds will return to a moderate 15-20km/h.

It is still a bit chilly here, -11c at the base this morning, so remember to wrap up warm, especially if you are heading up high today.

With the wind forecast to ease and the snow sticking around, the run in to Christmas is looking good. Keep your eyes pealed for POW santa who will be out and about over the next few days.
