Good morning!

After a few seasons off, ‘Kiroro Now’ reports are back on SnowJapan, bringing you daily news from another of Hokkaido’s popular ski destinations. Fingers, toes, everything crossed for a bumper snow season – it’s the least we locals deserve having endured all the stresses of 2020!

The big news here in Kiroro is that lifts will begin operating this Saturday December 5th. Admittedly, this is one week later than initially planned due to slow early snowfall but the last few days and nights have delivered the goods and the mountain operations, grooming and patrol teams are hard at work preparing for day one fun!

For the last 24 hours, I can report 15cm of fresh snow at base level and more up top. Temperatures are well below zero ranging from -6 at base to approximately -10 at mountain top. Wind conditions are moderate and visibility is variable with patches of fogginess interspersed amidst clearer moments. Snowfall is predicted to continue today and throughout the rest of the working week, potentially easing up for Saturday’s opening. All in all, today is one of those pre-season days which gets you super excited about what is to come over the next few weeks and months.

I look forward to bringing you all the news from Kiroro this winter!
