Good morning from Grandeco.

I am happy to report 10cm of fresh snow that has fallen last night. All the branches of the trees are covered with snow and it all looks beautiful... as it should be!

The ski courses have that new layer of snow and are perfectly groomed. It should be a fine morning.

According to the forecast, snow will keep falling on and off through until around the 6th, cloudy through 10th, big snow fall around the night time on 10th. Let's see how that plays out. The remaining courses (including the advanced course) will open when there's enough snow - hopefully around that time.

Snow park information:
5m straight rail, 4m straight rail, 4m down box, 4 formed cask, drum can, 6m straight box, 8m straight rail, 6m down box and 6m wide box.
