Good morning from Kiroro!

The storm brought the goods with 36 cm of new snow at the base and 51 cm at the peak over night. Not much fell during the day yesterday and it pretty much all came after 9 pm or so. Unfortunately, it's also quite windy, so the gondola and Asari No. 2 are on hold right now. Hopefully the wind will die down a bit as expected midday and they'll open up. That leaves the Nagamine side the only one open to the top for now.

Significant winds are expected through Sunday, with Sunday morning possibly shaping up to be very similar to today since heavy snow is also expected Saturday night.

Kiroro Now ski lift operation notes:

Gondola and Asari No. 2 on hold. Asari 2-C open to Mountain Club members until noon (if Asari side top lifts open).
