Good morning from Grandeco.

The snow depth has decreased to 50cm this morning because the sunshine was strong yesterday and there was melt going on...

In the south part of Mt. Bandai, there are no ski ground open today.
To the north of Mt Bandai (Urabandai), Grandeco resort and Nekoma ski ground are open.
Near Fukushima city, Minowa ski resort is open today.

Each ski-jo that is open is trying hard to keep the snow and remain open but there is not so much snow around - as yet! There may be closings if they are struggling too much before we get more snow.

But the good news is the next snowfall here is due from tomorrow evening through the weekend. So we are all waiting for Santa to bring us a lot of snow, snow, snow!
