Good morning from Grandeco.

A little snow is falling but it won't cover the courses.

Grandeco has re-opened this morning with the upper part of Rainbow 3500 open. It is about 1km in length, narrow but with great views of Mt. Bandai. The course is not connecting to base and so you need to get the gondola to get back down. It is not a steep course but as it is very narrow some skill is needed and there's no room to 'overtake' or take big wide curves.

The Gondola and Number 2 lifts are operating and a 1 day ticket is 1560 yen for adults and 1200 yen for children.

There are no other ski resort open in Fukushima at this moment.

If the rainbow 3500 course becomes unusable, Grandeco will end the ski season and stop operating the Number 2 lift but will keep operating the Gondola until 8th May for sightseeing tourists and the kid's sled area which is located in near the gondola peak station.

Also, trekking guide tours to the Dekodaira marshlands which are a 30 minute walk from the gondola peak station will start from 1st May. It is a good tour to feel the early spring on the mountain. Snow boots rental is available for this tour.

Operating lifts:
Gondola and Number 2 lift

Opening courses:
Rainbow 3500 upper part (1km long. 5m wide)
