Good morning from Grandeco.

At last the wind has eased off and is a calm morning.

Snow started falling again yesterday evening, and we can record 14cm of new snow this morning. It is still falling as I write this at 8:00 and according to the forecast, it should be falling on and off through tomorrow as well.

The conditions have now turned into really good powder snow.

The slopes are going to be crowded with many skiers and boarders this weekend - perhaps the busiest day of the year.

Have a nice weekend and a safe end of the year.
