Spring has definitely sprung at Kiroro this past week.

Cool morning temperatures (-8c at the peak) have refrozen the snow so expect firm conditions out there in the AM.

The skies are expected to stay cloudy today, with a welcome wave of snowfall due to arrive during the day. Most of the snow is expected to fall tonight and into tomorrow.

Moderate NNW winds reported at the peak, sitting around 46km/h. The wind is not expected to increase further, and if this remains the case all upper lifts will be operating today.

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.
