Snowy conditions greet skiers and snowboarders in Kiroro this morning with the storm continuing. 8cm of fresh snow at base level. This week really has been great and fingers are crossed this fantastic season start is a sign that the whole winter will deliver the goods.

Winds are a little stronger today than in the past few days. While they’re not so heavy to warrant any lift closures, they are certainly heavy enough to call upon an extra under layer, especially given the upper mountain temperatures being super low, around 16 degrees.

According to the long range forecast, the end of the storm is now in sight with Tuesday potentially being the first non-snow day here in Kiroro for what will have been nearly two weeks.

But there’s plenty of fresh snow still on the way between now and then.
