Good Morning everyone!

The snow is falling at Grandeco and has been through most of yesterday evening. It's forecasted to continue snowing the rest of the day and into tomorrow.

With 5cm of new snow, conditions are groomed and packed powder through out the resort. The courses at Grandeco are now 80% operational, with just over 4000 meters of ski-able terrain. No new courses to report now, but if snow continues the #4 Lift should be opening by this weekend.
As it's mid-week, lift lines should not be a problem.

For people wanting to climb Mt. Nishidaiten, please be sure to fill in the mountain climbing sheet located by the ticket counter. Take the gondola and the Number 3 lift to hike up. It will take one and half hours from the top of the lift to Mt. Nishidaiten peak by foot. Snowshoes are highly recommended.

Snow Park Information:

4m straight rail, 5m straight rail, 4 formed cask, drum can, 6m straight box, 8m straight rail, 3m kicker, 5m table top.
Newly added to the park is a large 3m high x 8m long J-Curve Snowbank.
More to come from the park team in the near future.
