Good morning from a very snowy Grandeco.

Heavy snow is falling as I write this report at 8:30am.

18cm of fresh snowfall on the ground and it is forecast to be snowing for the day.

According to the forecast, the peak of snowfall will be this evening to overnight.

Pay attention to the road condition / highway / rail information.

Wind is not strong at this moment with the gondola start moving on time. Other lifts should follow on from that.

It is great day to enjoy fresh soft powder snow but keep an eye on the weather information too.

The snow park will close if/when visibility is very poor.
