Merry Christmas from snowy Grandeco.

Happily, 4cm of fresh snow has accumulate at base last night even the forecast was telling us to expect just cloudy conditions. It is still continuing to fall this morning 8am. Thanks Santa.

The snow condition is fairly decent, light snow but the resort has decided to close Basil and lower part of Rainbow 3500 course today to preserve what they have, leaving 3000m course length still open.

The forecast remains positive for good snow in the coming week. Let's hope it is right!
