A bumper snow day here in Kiroro with 34cm measured on the platform at base level this morning.

Moderate winds, scheduled to lighten, make for comfortable riding conditions though temperatures are on the cold side, ranging from -7 to -14. It should become slightly warmer in the middle of the day.

Visibility is variable and it’s one of those days where the snow clouds seem to rise and fall over the resort, offering patches of sunlight but also moments of heavy fog. Low light lenses are the way to go today.

The forecast is calling for light to moderate snow in light to moderate wind throughout the day today. A storm is scheduled to roll in tonight, bringing with it a lot more new snow but also heavy winds. Fingers crossed they’re not so significant as to impact lift operation, but we will be with you first thing tomorrow with all that news!
