Mother Nature has blessed Kiroro with a very nice layer of powder since yesterday... but it is pretty cold!

Up to 50cm up top with over 30cm at base.

The wind at the top of Kiroro makes conditions that bit more challenging.

That said, well protected, it will be a very nice day on the runs and side and we should be get another 15 cm or so during the day.

The dogs enjoy these temperatures: make sure you are as well protected as they are! (See photo).

Tomorrow should be a better day: less wind, more sun, better visibility and a lot of powder from the night before.

The coming week is very promising in terms of snowfall: it is going to be an extremely white Christmas!
