Spring has sprung at Kiroro. Temperatures are above freezing all the way to the peak this morning and up to 5°C at the base. It is currently cloudy but sunshine is expected later in the day, turning into a classic spring day.

The snowpack is holding up well to this extended warm weather, the lack of rain has helped. Lower slopes will already be a little slushy, and upper slopes will soften up quickly.

The wind started out quite strong this morning, however it has dropped to 58km/h, which won't cause any problems for lift operations, so expect our lifts to be running as usual unless the wind increases again.

Before you hang up your powder skis for the season, there is more snow on the horizon! It is forecast to get colder from tonight onwards, with moderate snowfall expected throughout the week. A final blast of winter?

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.
