Hello and good morning from Grandeco.

18cm of fresh snow at base this morning. That sounds good doesn't it.

There's a moderate north westerly wind at base and about 7m/s at the top of the resort.

The remaining quad lift is still planning to start moving from tomorrow along with the Lavender-28 course. It will be great to see the resort fully open at last.

And other good news is the forecast. It's looking good for lots of snow over the coming week. In particular keep an eye on early next week with some heavy snow lined up.

Has the winter switch been turned on properly now? Hope so!
