Good morning ski & snowboard lovers!

It was interesting to see the evolution of the snow quality this morning coming from Akaigawa (20km away from Kiroro) to Kiroro: from heavy sticky snow in the trees to light powder at my final destination.

Today will be a good one - wind is quiet and last night brought a nice layer of fresh snow. 10cm at top and 6cm at base. More light snow should coming later in the day.

Tomorrow should be pretty similar before significant snowfall from Monday through Wednesday.

This is also the first day that the Gateway run will be open - this is the run that brings you down to Tribute Hotel and Yu Kiroro building.
