Morning from Grandeco.

It's a calm morning here.

4cm of fresh at base to report and more up top on the mountain, perhaps not as much as we were hoping for but still a nice new layer with more promised.

It's still a little of the mild side and not as cold as we expect but a drop in temperatures is due over the coming days as well as that consistent snowfall that we are promised. Snow is expected every day going though into early next week.

The top to base 4000m long course remains open with some of the advanced courses remaining closed... waiting for the snow, one decent snowfall should see them open up.

Recap - the three ski resorts in Ura Bandai (Grandeco, Nekoma, Ura Bandai) are all open. The areas to the south of Mt Bandai (Inawashiro and Bantai town) are not having it as good... Inawashiro & Minero ski areas are closed between 4-8 Jan and Inawashiro Resort ski area is closed. Alts Bandai ski remains open but it is very limited.

Basically everyone remains waiting for snow!
