Good morning from Kiroro!

In the last 24hours we have received 7 cm of snow at the base and 5 at the top. This brings our snow depth to 205 cm at the base and 330 cn at the top.

It's lightly snowing off and on at the base and fairly calm, but quite cold this morning. Wind chill at the top can be expected to be in the -30's. Though it is supposed to be moderately windy at the top throughout the day, lifts are all operating normally. The wind should back off by tonight and continue to decrease through Saturday afternoon. Roughly 12 new cm of snow should also fall in the next 24 hours, and 7 tomorrow, but the snow might leave for a couple of days after that, hopefully returning by Monday night.

Yesterday afternoon, there were still fresh lines to be found, but I could still feel the bottom. It seems that the snow was blown around over night, so it might be fairly wind affected at the top at least.

Stay warm out there!
