What a topsy turvy week it’s been here in Kiroro! Monday, snowstorm. Tuesday, bluebird. Wednesday, snowstorm. And today…. Another bluebird!

Glorious sunshine and blue skies greet this morning’s skiers and boarders, with temperatures sitting just above naught at base and dropping down to -8 up top. 15cm of fresh snow fell yesterday before that front passed and the skies cleared. Visibility is unlimited today and the wind, while present, is only gentle. Perfect spring skiing conditions.

Looking ahead, there may be some snow flutters this afternoon and this evening but conditions should largely remain clear and sunny for the weekend.

Looking further ahead, the end of March signals the end of ‘high season’ in Kiroro so lift operation will be scaled back. The exact details of which lifts will and won’t operate is still to be confirmed and will depend largely on snow conditions as the spring melt takes hold. The resort is scheduled to operate at some capacity until May 5th and I will keep you updated each day with the specifics.

For today, it’s the Kiroro Gondola, Family, Yoichi 1 and Yoichi 2 chairs spinning Kiroro’s skiers up the mountain.
