Update at 2pm

Due to the heavy rain this morning, the resort has decided that Melissa, Basil and the lower part of Rainbow 3500 courses will close from tomorrow (Tuesday).
Deco land will also close from tomorrow for a re-arrange, with plans to re-open from Saturday.

Original morning report

Unfortunately, Grandeco has endured heavy rainfall from last night.

This morning the rain is still falling and it's heavy rain at times. Not the nicest of conditions! Might be better to wear a rain suit than ski wear today.

The rain should (hopefully) clear this afternoon and it will be sunny once again tomorrow.

Some courses are closed but the 4000m long run remains open. For beginners to intermediates, take the gondola, #1 and #2 lift. For the more advanced courses, take the #3 lift.

All lakes around Urabandai were covered with ice during the winter but the ice has disappeared now.

Grandeco will continue on with the season until the snow has disappeared from the slopes.

---

Lifts operating:

Lift 4 has closed for the season, but all of the other lifts and Gondola remain operating

Courses open except

[B-b] Mint
[D-a] Lavender
[G] Lavender 28
[H] Center 33

---

Snow and weather forecast:

6 day snow and weather forecast for Grandeco

---

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.
