Good morning from Kiroro.
After a wild and windy night last night things have calmed down enough for all lifts to open this morning. There was a trace of snowfall overnight, the strong wind will have been moving that snow around so expect the new snow depth to be variable.
Temperatures remain cool, -13 at the peak, with the cloud stoping that warm spring sun from breaking through. Some fog is expected at higher elevations today, New Zealand style riming is a posibility.
The wind is forcast to keep dropping throughout the day, with snow flurries in between the cloud and fog.
