Good morning from Grandeco.

And it's good news. Apart from the 6cm of fresh snow here at base since yesterday the bigger news of the day is that... Grandeco is now fully open!

Yes, all of the lifts are moving from this morning and 100% open courses as well. It took long enough than everyone would have liked, but everyone is also very happy to get to this point!

The fresh snow this morning is light and blowing around a bit in the wind, so it should be good conditions out there.

The forecast is also very good for the coming week with quite a lot of snow due (especially early in the week). It should be snowing overt the weekend as well, and remain cold so come prepared!

There's a 'Kitakata ramen' event being held at the resorts over the next 6 weekends. Kitakata ramen is one of the famous ramen 'brands' (?), and definitely worth a lunchtime taste if you like noodles.
