Morning from Grandeco where it is cloudy with light rain at base at times and light snow higher up on the mountain.

Snow conditions are also variable from base to top - wet snow down here and fairly decent conditions higher up. Though obviously not peak deep conditions.

The good news is that the forecast is looking good for the coming days. It should be getting colder again overnight tonight and into tomorrow and hopefully we might have some fresh snow tomorrow morning. It is then forecast for snow regularly for the rest of the week and into the weekend.

80% of the slopes are open at the resort - could it be fully open by the weekend? Now that would be good.
