Good morning from Grandeco.

We have quickly changing weather conditions here this morning. It has been mostly cloudy, there has been some blue sky appearing at times and a 10m/s wind from the west. As this report is being posted, light snow is falling. It doesn't seem to be able to make up it's mind what to do.

There are 5 courses opened at the resort now - info below.

According to the weather forecast, today should be cloudy with relatively mild conditions - course condition are getting soft.

Milder conditions are expected for the coming week with some rain in the mix too. Have to keep an eye on that.
