Good morning from Grandeco.

Unfortunately, rain has been falling from last night through to now and there's fog around at the moment. The forecast tells us to expect rain now until around mid afternoon today.

Yesterday in the morning, there was a bit of snow on the top part of the ski courses, just a little, but none this morning...

This weekend, the weather should be cloudy with some blue skies.

From 8th-10th April, the 2016 FIS Fukushima Moguls competition will be held on the Lavender 28 course, and that course won't be available during that period.

Grandeco is still 50% open (courses) and you can still ski from top to bottom on over 4km of terrain. Condition of the snow is generally kind of sherbet-like.

#3 lift is for advances course, it will close for the season when the course is unconnected. Enjoy it while you can!

Resorts that remain open in the region are Grandeco, Nekoma and Minowa. Nekoma will be closed between 19th-21st and 26th-28 April but these resorts all plan to be open until 5th May ---- whether they can do that or not will totally depend on the snow levels of course, which are less than usual and less than expected.
