Good morning from Snowy Grandeco.

16cm of fresh snow has fallen last night and very fine snow is still falling at the moment, making visibility quite poor.

Snow is good quality powder because of the low temperature, very light even you can blow.

If snow continues to fall heavily through this morning, the groomers will be out during the day. Patrol mobiles will attend the truck but please pay attention to the announcements and keep clear!

All roads around this area are completely covered with snow - snowplough trucks everywhere.

Be sure to check your pockets are zipped up before starting skiing.... it is really hard to find things if you drop into the powder snow!
