Yesterday had blue skies, clouds and snowfall, a little bit of everything. Overnight business as usual returned, with 12cm falling at the base of Kiroro.
The snow continues to fall lightly here and it seems unlikely that we will see the sun today, although I can't hear many powder skiers/riders complaining. The snowy weather is set to stick around for a few days now, giving Kiroro a solid refresh.
Temperatures have risen today, it is -10°C at the peak and -6°C at the base. However a 61km/h wind at the peak will still make it feel cold. All the weekday lifts are opening, however any increase in wind will see the upper lifts operating slowly.
