Good morning from Kiroro!

While there was 20 cm of new snow with wind drifts up to 30 cm at the base, and 20 cm at the peak, with the gale-force winds last night, that snow is probably pretty wind affected. The winds are predicted to stay strong through the afternoon, with up to 75 kph winds this morning and up to 70 kph midday at the top. Like yesterday, all 3 top lifts are on wind hold and there is no sign of them opening up for the rest of the day.

It only rained for a short while yesterday morning at the base and snowed for the rest of the day, but the snow was heavy and wet, and everyone who came inside was pretty much soaked straight through their ski gear.

It's currently snowing at the base, though only about 6cm of new snow is likely to fall today, and a negligible amount tomorrow. Winds are supposed to calm by tonight, and snow should return by Monday evening.
