The continuous top ups roll on. Yesterday and overnight saw 14cm fall at the base of Kiroro, primarily coming in two waves of heavy snowfall at 2pm and 5pm. Overnight the winds picked up moving that snow around, so expect deeper pockets of snow on wind loaded aspects.
The wind has dropped off now, however it is still 50km/h at the peak and feels much colder than the West South West winds we had yesterday. Temperatures before wind chill are -6°C and -10°C at the base and peak respectively.

The clouds have lifted to around 1000m this morning with very light snowfall. The current trend of cloud and sporadic snowfall is due to continue for the next week, with a return to the seasonal cool temperatures.
