Grandeco has had just a slight dusting of snow overnight.

It is a very cold morning as well with temperatures down to -10 degrees up at the top of the resort and not much 'warmer' down here at base either!

There is wind, the snow condition on the courses is nice and light powder snow.

Some people climbed up to Mt. Nishidaiten yesterday - they said it is not so hard to hike up and the run from the peak was excellent powder snow.

Please bring compass or GPS when you hike and be sure to fill in the mountain climbing registration at the ski center information counter.

According to the forecast, snow will start falling from Friday, and it should be a snowy weekend.
