Good morning from Kiroro.

And we have more snow! Its light and fluffy and springtime, so the slopes are pretty much empty! At the base we received 21cm and 23cm at the top, on top of yesterdays drop you shouldnt have an issue finding some fresh lines. The snow depth is now 210cm at the base and 360cm at the top.

The cloud cover is coming and going so a transitional lense would be ideal today. The temperature is a mild -6at the base and the wind is around 25km at the base where we are sheltered. The top has a little higher Westerlies around 46km, that look to decrease later in the afternoon.

The next 24 hours should hopefully bring us another 14cm of snow at the base, and continute through until Friday eve/Saturday morning.

Enjoy the riding!

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
