It’s a happy Friday here in Kiroro with news that the storm has passed and the winds have dropped.

So the 40cm plus of snow which has fallen over the past two days is now more accessible with lift operation returning largely to normal.

Word from the resort this morning is that the Kiroro Gondola will be delayed for opening until 11am.

The temperature has dropped again so layer up, winds are calm and visibility good.

There is another front on its way which will hit Kiroro this afternoon or evening bringing warmer temps, more wind and plenty of snow for the weekend.
