Good morning from Grandeco.

Nice blue skies above us this morning.

Snow was falling on and off yesterday, but the wind was blowing quite strongly -- and there's not much new snow to be recorded. A little disappointing really.

Still, the mountains are covered with light dry snow, and there's some great scenery to enjoy this morning as a bonus.

The Number 3 lift and Mint A course - which is higher than the gondola top station - is now open.

The snow condition is quite dry in this area. It is quite cold this morning but of course, good day to enjoy skiing - just get wrapped up!
