The ultra-cold snap has arrived here in Kiroro with temperatures heading into the minus teens today and for the next few days. Layer up!

Winds are fairly still as I publish and 4cm of fresh snow can be reported for the 24 hour period. The skies are grey with fleeting snow showers this morning, forecast to get stronger as the day progresses.

Kiroro’s New Year visitors will be treated to plenty of fresh snow should the 4-day forecast prove correct with heavy snowfall scheduled for tomorrow night, Thursday and Friday. The strong December snowfall has almost all areas of the resort now fully operational. Aside from the Asari 1 and 2 lifts which won’t run this season, everything is spinning except the Nagamine 2 chair which is rumoured to be opening on New Year’s Day, much earlier than in seasons past.

The resort is hosting a fireworks show on New Year’s Eve as well as a torchlight relay, giveaways and a lucky draw.
