Good morning from Grandeco.

Some snow fell yesterday but it turned into rain again this morning so there's no fresh cm of snow to record.

Still, there's 250cm of snow depth out there and snow cover remains complete with no ground showing at all on the courses.

Rather wet snow conditions, so in that respect good and slippery! Rain should stop falling in the morning and some sunshine might appear in the afternoon - waxing will be important!

Weather will be calm with some sunshine for several days after the skies clear up.

Ski hills remaining open in Bandai area :
Grandeco, Nekoma and Minowa.
