Good morning from Grandeco.

Fresh snowfall! And good quality snow too - measuring 16cm to go on the report this morning.

Nice.

Something of a surprise really, but we'll very happily accept it.

And there's still snow on the forecast through until the weekend too so it's exciting to think we might get some regular top-ups over the coming run of days.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
