Good morning from Grandeco.

It continued to snow from yesterday and this morning we have 14cm of fresh at base... and the official snow depth has jumped up to 320cm.

According to the weather, conditions should be variable today with strong winds from the NW; however it is fairly calm at the moment.

Already the Gondola is operating, but other quad-chair lifts may be delayed due to moving snow and the conditions this morning.

The snow conditions today are not as light not as usual, due to the air humidity, but this heavier snow will make for a stronger core in the late part of the season.

Both snow park areas couldn't open early on and they are currently busy digging themselves out!
