Good morning from Grandeco.

A cold morning here due to the passing of a large low-pressure system, is in the spring and actually some fine snow falling earlier.

Because of the strong wind from the west today, lift operations are affected at the start of the day.

As this report is being written more blue skies are starting to appear - perhaps it will be a fine day.

Number 1 quad
