Good morning from Grandeco and it is the first day of the winter season for the resort.

And here's what is open today after 10cm of fresh snow up until this morning:

- Center course (2km length)
- Upper part of Rainbow 3500 (1km length)

So all together there is 3km of skiable course open.

The Gondola and Number 1 quad lifts are operating and opening times are from 8am until 4pm.

Goshikinuma through to Grandeco the roads are covered with wet snow and are slippery. Take care with the driving!

The resort will open up more when there is enough snow. More snow is due during the day today and tomorrow and then again from mid week, so things are looking promising.

Here's to a very snowy 2016-2017 season!
