Good morning from a rainy Grandeco on what might be the last day of the ski/snowboard season here.

Unfortunately, it was raining last night and it is still falling and will probably continue through the day.

The weather should change tomorrow with sun forecast temperatures rising to higher than 15C.

Grandeco has been trying really hard these last few weeks to keep course(s) open for skiers and boarders who want to keep on going, but sadly the end is coming --- either this afternoon or tomorrow.

Nature wins out in the end with the remaining snow quickly disappearing and the rain of course not helping matters either.

Grandeco will keep operating the Gondola until 8th May for hikers, sightseeing tourists, people using the sledge area and snow shoe trekkers.

If you are going to be here for skiing, please pay attention to the open course information .
