Good morning from Grandeco.

Nice blue skies once again this morning.

Spring nature takes hold. Sadly, some courses - lower part of Rainbow 3500 and Basil course - will have to be closed from this morning due to the retreating snow. To get down to the base area you'll need to take the Center course.

The courses remaining open now are Melissa, Mint B, Lavender B, the upper part of Rainbow 3500 and Center course; representing more than 3km of course from the top to base.

Three more days to the end the season. Have fun!
