Good morning from Grandeco Resort.

Very clear blue skies and gentle winds this morning.

Snow conditions should be pretty good in the morning, with temperatures rising this afternoon. The weather should stay sunny all of today and the better part of tomorrow as well.

Tomorrow is the last day of the season that Lift #3 will be operating, so this weekend is a good time to get to the top of the mountain. The Nishidaiten backcountry area is accessible today as well.

There is a mogul contest today on the Lavender 28 course starting at 10:20am which is free to watch.

The Spring Snow Park and 50m Halfpipe are open from 10:00am. It is being maintained all day long so there is still plenty to play on.
