It’s Groundhog Day here in Kiroro with another December powder morning, albeit a very chilly one! 14cm of fresh snow showing on the stick this morning, which fell quite consistently throughout the day yesterday and overnight.

Chuck on an extra layer as temps are low, dropping to as cold as neg 15 at higher aspects of the mountain range. Wind is light with moderate gusts and visibility is fairly good. Snow is expected throughout the day and over the coming few days.

Rumour that the Nagamine 2 lift will begin operation on January 1st is now fact, with the resort making the announcement yesterday. This will mean the popular Nagamine A, B and C courses plus the side and backcountry around that area will become accessible.

Perhaps New Year’s Eve might be an early night for me! Night skiing is in operation today, with the Family and Center Express lifts spinning until 7pm.
