Good morning from a chilly Grandeco.

It was raining yesterday along with strong winds - like a Spring storm. The storm continued until this morning 9:00 with the gondola not being able to start as planned due to the wind. It has calmed down somewhat now and as if 9:30am and all lifts are moving.

It has got colder again, and without any fresh snow the courses are rather icy. Because of this hard snow condition, snow park "Dekodaira E park" with two 9m kickers will be closed today.

Hoping to have new snow soon - keep an eye on the forecast!
