Good morning from Grandeco.

Unfortunately, very strong sunshine yesterday and rain this morning isn't helping keep the snow!

Certainly a fair bit of damaged because of the weather conditions, with some ground appearing at base areas.

It looks like the Lavender 28 course will close from today. People who want to enjoy a steeper course - take the Number 3 lift and head for Melissa.

There's still 4km of course available but if much more ground appears around the base area, the lower part of Rainbow 3500 and Basil course will close.

If you decide not to ski today due to the weather and conditions, look for the beautiful sakura cherry blossom trees by the Kannonji river in Inawashiro town. 200 sakura trees are blooming beside the river there.
