Good Morning!

It is snowing heavy this morning here at Grandeco. With 20cm of new snow fall last night, the conditions are fresh across the resort. Today the trails are powder and packed powder. With a base of just under 3m, Grandeco is now 100% operational. The 3rd and 4th Lift should be especially good today for those who like deeper-snow skiing and boarding.

Also for people looking to climb Mt. Nishidaiten, please be sure to fill in the mountain climbing sheet located by the inforamtion desk next to the ticket counter. Take the gondola and the lift 3 or 4 to hike up. It takes about an hour and a half from the top of either lift to reach Mt. Nishidaiten peak on foot. Snowshoes or skinned skies are highly recommended for the hike up.
