Good morning from Grandeco.

It's a little cold this morning but there's a gentle wind and good visibility.

It might be April from today of course, but many skiers and snowboarders are arriving to the ski center.

There was no fresh snowfall last night and it is difficult to see any fresh until around the 4th or 5th.

Snow conditions are not icy and very good for April. All courses are open and tree run course is still available on the Lavender A course.
