Grandeco has had just a slight dusting of snow - a few mm - overnight.

It was a cold overnight and start to the morning, but it has become more milder as the morning goes on and the snow on the slopes will have softened up.

It is probably going to get colder again tonight with some snow forecast, and the forecast for the coming weekend is still looking good with quite a lot of snow lined up.

It is still looking very likely to be a cold and snowy Christmas weekend with temperatures dropping to mid-winter levels. There may be some strong winds blowing around as well around Sunday. Be sure to wrap up well and be sure to be prepared for such conditions if you plan on being here.

60% of the slopes at Grandeco remain open with the gondola and two hi-speed lift currently operating at the resort. With a decent snowfall, hopefully by early next week the whole resort will be able to open.

The roads around the Ura Bandai area and up to Grandeco are covered with snow - snow tires are needed.

The ski resorts in the Inawashiro area on the southern side of Mt Bandai remain closed, waiting for more snowfall.
