Good morning from a chilly Grandeco.

There was no fresh snowfall last night.

It was a sunny day yesterday and the surface of the snow has melted and frozen again overnight, should be a bit icy this morning.

Course conditions will be a little core in the morning and change into wet snow in the afternoon because of the strong sunshine.

It is best to ski on the upper courses beside No.3 and 4 lift in these conditions.

The wind direction has changed from north to south - some forecast say that it will be rain tomorrow but we are hoping for it to be snow.
