Good morning from Grandeco.

The course to the base area has now closed. Take the Gondola and you can ride on the courses beside the Number 2 lift. Both sides of the course are not covered with snow, so be careful. New gear not recommended!

The Nekoma resort has one course open along with one lift and a snow park beside the course.

Both Nekoma and Grandeco will be open until 6th Sunday - this will be your last chance to ski in this region this season!

- 3rd May is 'Constitution Day' (Kenpo-kinenbi)
- 4th May is 'Greenery Day' (Midori-no-hi)
