Good Morning from Kiroro.

In the last 24hours we have received 10cm new snow at the top and base of the resort. Our snow depth is now 190cm at the base and 290cm at the top.

Today we have mild conditons all over the resort, and light snow flurries, and this should be consistant all day. Groomers have been nicely topped up, however be cautious off piste as the tracks and bumps from prior days can still be felt.

It looks like we should be receiving some substantial snow from tomorrow afternoon, with the wind Sunday evening increasing to 45km bringing around 23cm by Monday morning. Keep an eye on the lift operations for Monday.

Our lift operations have extended now due to the extended day light hours, and note that the Asari chair will be open from 755am tomorrow (and every Sunday) for those wanting the first tracks option.

Enjoy the riding!

Kiroro Now ski lift operation notes:

All open.
