Good afternoon from Kiroro.

Apologies for lack of updates since beginning of April.

We have enjoyed some nice spring days in the past two weeks with some spring storms and some snowfall.

There is still enough snow for skiing at Kiroro, total snow depth is 300cm at the top and 100cm at the base.

We had a light snowfall last night and got 5cm of new snow at the top and 3cm at the base. Courses were covered by fresh snow, but be careful for hidden objects such as bushes, rocks and ices when you are riding.

Today was cold and cloudy. Temperatures were -5℃ at the top and -3℃ at the base this morning.

Kiroro’s lift operation hours:

-Gondola only runs on weekends and public holidays.
-Asari No.1, No.2, and Yoichi No.2 lifts/express lifts had finished its operation on April 2nd.
-Rest of the lifts are running with spring operation hours.

Enjoy spring skiing and snowboarding!

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily until the end, some will become less than daily now that we are in 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.
