Good morning from Grandeco.

Beautiful blue skies this morning.

It is a very (relatively) warm morning too. The snow depth will take a hit with the temperatures today for sure.

The Gondola and No.3 lift are moving and 85% of course is open in Grandeco.

One more ski hill that is open in this area is Nekoma. The Oguni No.1B lift in Nekoma is moving from 5:55 (exactly!) during the Golden Week (until 7 May). It's good to feel the early morning snow condition, if you can get up early enough!

It is warm today so many people will be out enjoying the skiing wearing short sleeves, but don't forget to protect your elbows and skin from injury and the strong sunshine too.
