ORIGINAL REPORT:

Good morning from Kiroro.

Unfortunately, there is a power failure here this morning so lifts aren’t running.

I am told the mountain operations team are speaking with the relevant authorities to get more information on when it will be fixed. I’ll share an update as soon as I have it!

In fairness, of all the mornings to miss out on skiing, this isn’t a bad one. A small amount of wet slush/snow fell overnight and as I type, it’s drizzling with rain. Wet, sticky conditions with temperatures hovering around the 0 degree mark. Winds are also quite gusty.

Temps are scheduled to drop later today which should see this precipitation turn into snow. The next few days are looking good for new snow.

Official data (as reported by the ski area):

Peak: 260cm snow depth
Base: 200cm snow depth

Lifts: 6/10
Trains: 24/24

Kiroro Now ski lift operation notes:

All lifts currently suspended due to power outage
