Even with the Gondola closed all day due to strong winds, yesterday was a good day with the lower mountain holding some good snow. The crust from Thursdays rain was still lurking but you could only hit it on the deepest of turns.

During the day and overnight Kiroro received another 18cm of snow, with 23cm falling at the peak to add to the untouched 25cm yesterday. The winds have dropped and the Gondola will be open. I'll let you do the maths on how much snow will be waiting up there! The snowpack is starting to fill in now, with 155cm at the peak, however the tide is still too low for those planning on heading into the backcountry.

After a short break it is snowing again this morning and the snow is forecast to stick around all day. Temperatures have dropped to between -7°C and -10°C with the northerly wind adding a bit more bite.
