No fresh snow! Not usual cause for celebration here in Kiroro but a welcome morning off the ‘mamadump’ for those of us who have spent the last few weeks relentlessly snow clearing driveways, footpaths, stairs and everything else simply to be able to leave the house of a morning. The sheer effort has had the better of Hoku and Sugar - as you can see in the photo below!

But the dry spell won’t last long with a storm on its way, scheduled to arrive this evening and deliver big time over the coming days.

Today in Kiroro – 0cm of fresh snow, temperatures ranging from -8 to -14 though things may warm up slightly later in the day.

Wind conditions are calm this morning, expected to pick up before and during the storm. The resort is covered in a blanket of light, quite high cloud. Visibility is variable.
