The sun is out again (!) at Grandeco this morning. Bring the sunscreen and get ready for some full on spring skiing.

The forecast says it will be overcast, but from here there is nothing but blue on the horizon at the moment.

Rain is also still on the forecast for sometime later on tomorrow and perhaps into Monday. I think it's a bit too much to hope for any snow unfortunately. It has of course been a strange season though, so who knows!

Resorts that remain open in the region are Grandeco, Nekoma and Minowa. Nekoma will be closed between 19th-21st and 26th-28 April but these resorts all plan to be open until 5th May ---- whether they can do that or not will totally depend on the snow levels of course, which are less than usual and less than expected.
