Good morning from Grandeco on this Christmas Eve.

8cm of fresh snow at base to report this morning. It fell last night and temperatures were low and so it's a good quality light snow.

The lower part of the Rainbow 3500 course and Basil course are open once again from this morning with 3500 meters length in total now available.

According to the forecast, the next snowfall will be on around 27th Tuesday. I'm cautiously optimistic looking at the forecast for the coming week, even if there doesn't seem to be any huge prolonged dump of snow on the short term horizon. We'll have to make do with hopefully regular small installments!

Snow park information:
6 meters down box and 6 meters wide box available.

Deco land (area for beginners and kids):
The snow escalator are not in operation this weekend but the area is open for sledding (free).
