Good morning from Grandeco.

There was no rain last night but it is forecast to rain from this afternoon and tonight. If the forecast is right, it'll be heavy rain as well at times and so an early ski in the morning is recommended!

The official snow depth on the courses is 190cm now - though less than that in places of course. There's a bit of ground starting to appear in some parts of the lower course areas - but nothing major yet.
