Good morning from Grandeco.

More good news with 15cm of fresh snowfall in this area last night.

The resort has now opened Basil course (intermediate) and Rainbow 3500 lower course (beginners) from this morning which is good to see. That means that there is now 3500m of beginners course available, and 70% of the courses at the resort are open.

The snow condition is nice and light this morning because of the low temperature.

The forecast tells us to expect snowfall to stop this afternoon and be back around Sunday.

Once there's enough decent snowfall, the remaining advanced course will open. Fingers crossed.
