Good morning.

It was raining with some strong winds yesterday - like a nasty spring storm - but I am happy to report that the rain turned into snow overnight and there is 5cm of new snow measured at Grandeco base this morning. A nice surprise.

Some strong winds remain this morning but they should be easing off soon. The wind direction had changed from westerly to northerly and it is colder.

Snow conditions are a bit hard snow due to the rain yesterday but courses should be perfectly groomed and in decent condition.

According to the forecast, it will be snowing again tomorrow night.

Usually, March is still a good season to enjoy skiing in Bandai area, but this year more fresh snowfall is needed to keep conditions decent.

Anyway, today should be a good day for skiing with the fresh snow.
