Good morning folks.

I have some good news and bad news to report this morning. The bad news is the wind is much stronger than forecast, and while Kiroro is usually protected from Westerly winds, todays wind has swung more South and is gusting to 79km/h at the peak. This means that Asari #2, Nagamine #2 and the Gondola are currently on hold until the wind drops.

Now with the bad news out of the way; In the last 24 hours, Kiroro had 12cm of snow at the base. The wind will be loading the snow into sheltered easterly aspects (for example powder zone) making them even deeper. The snowfall has picked up in the last 10 minutes and will be filling in tracks all day.
