Good morning from Grandeco.

It was windy with some rain falling last night.

The rain stopped this morning but some strong winds are remaining meaning that the gondola is operating at reduced speed this morning.

It feels very warm and a little foggy because of the moisture. The visibility is not so good because of the fog, so care is needed.

Roads to Grandeco are wet but there is no ice or snow on the road anymore.

The snow depth at the resort is decreasing every day but the official snow depth is still at over 2 meters!
