We had a festive White Christmas in Kiroro yesterday with Santa delivering some of the best powder snow so far this year. It kept snowing throughout the day and overnight, giving us 36cm in the past 24 hours at the base.

The wind has picked up overnight, with gusts to 65km/h at the peak. The wind is not forecast to rise, so all lifts should remain open throughout the day. Temperatures have dropped to -13°C which will feel even colder due to the wind chill. Wrap up warm.

Nothing shakes of the cobwebs from overindulging on Christmas better than some powder laps, so head on up.
