Good morning from Kiroro!

It's overcast with no new snow at the base or peak this morning. 15 cm of new snow can be expected over the next 24 hours, with the heavist fall over night. While it's fairly calm this morning, winds can be expected to pick up steadily over the next few days through Thursday afternoon. However, winds today aren't expected to get to strong, only reaching up to 25 kph at the top in the afternoon.

I heard that the snow off the gondola was heavily wind affected, but that the non wind affected snow was good, but "creamy" yesterday. It is also likely that there will be some sun crust out there to deal with.
