Good morning from a very snowy Grandeco area.

Some fine powder snow has been delivered with 20cm of fresh at the moment and more coming as I write. The forecast is also for continued snow for the day today (with perhaps strong winds at times) and also through tomorrow and perhaps into Tuesday.

The new snowfall means that the Number 3 quad lift is able to start it's season from this morning, along with the B-b Mint course opening up... so the resort is now 80% open.

Hopefully soon that will be 100%!

The roads around the Ura Bandai area are this morning covered with snow with freezing road surfaces. Snow tires are necessary as well as careful driving.

Lifts operating:

Gondola
Number 1 quad
Number 2 quad
Number 3 quad

Courses open:

(A-a) Rainbow 3500
(A-b) Rainbow 3500
(A-c) Rainbow 3500
(B-a) Mint
(B-c) Mint
(C) Center
(D-b) Lavender
(F) Basil
