Good morning from a chilly Grandeco.

There's another 2cm of new snow this morning. Not as much as we would like of course but it all counts. The cold low temperatures are giving us very good quality snow even in this early season. More of it please!

The new soft snow is covering the top of the base which is still a little hard so a bit scrape-y in places.

According to the forecast, this area can expect new snowfall for today and tomorrow... but how much? I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow.

The resort is hoping to open more courses for this weekend.

Snow park information:

One 6 meters down box at this moment; another 6 meters wide box will appear from tomorrow.

Ski resorts which are open at this moment in the region are Minowa, Grandeco --- and Nekoma from today.
