Morning from Grandeco.

It's a bit wet this morning and feels more like spring...

Unfortunately we had rainfall and sleet yesterday evening and through the night. Amazingly, there was 10cm of snow at the top of the resort, though nothing new at base. Conditions are quite wet and soft this morning.

This morning it is sleet and wet snow conditions at base and occasionally snow higher up.

There is usually never any positive number temperatures in the Ura Bandai area in January, and the four lakes in the area usually freeze over in Winter but it has not happened (yet) this year. There's no snow on the roads this morning.

It's not the most exciting of conditions reports, I am afraid.

Rainbow 3500, Mint B-a, Mint B-c, Center, Lavender D-b, Basil are open - other advance courses are still closed, with the resort hoping to open them after next big snow fall.

When will that be? Well once we pass these few days of warmer conditions, there is a good chance of snow around Tuesday and then later in the week as well. So it should be with us. Let's hope lots of it.
