Good morning.

Grandeco will be opening for the season from tomorrow at 8:30am.

The opening course will be 2000m long Center course and the Number 1 quad lift will begin operations from 8:30am.

Snowfall in the Urabandai area is still not enough and so it's a very limited start, but of course good to see the season opening.

Probably best not use new ski or snowboard gear in this early season as there's rocks and things sticking up out of the snow still.

Snow is forecast for over the weekend and so hopefully the resort will soon be able to open up more...
