Overcast skies first thing this morning have cleared into beautiful bluebird conditions, the first of these days we’ve seen in some time!

5cm of fresh snow and calm, comfortable conditions greet Kiroro’s midweek skiers and snowboarders today. Temperatures range from 0 degree at base to approx -8 at higher elevations.

Visibility is excellent.

On piste skiers will delight in today’s conditions and those who prefer the powder will be salivating at the long range forecast which is calling for the arrival of a big storm front tomorrow which, hopefully, delivering multiple days of big snow.
