Good morning from a chilly Grandeco.

8cm of new fresh snow this morning and it is cold.

Very good snow condition out there, light as powder on every courses so a good day to be out enjoying the Urabandai snow today.

According to the forecast, this area can expect for some snowfall every day around until 13th Friday. (Hopefully not an unlucky one!)

Course maintenance teams at the resort have decided to open No.3 lift and Mint A course from tomorrow. It is a chance to hike up to Mt. Nishidaiten using No.3 lift this weekend. So that means that 4km of course from top to base will be available from tomorrow.
