Good morning from Grandeco.

It is a very beautiful morning with clear views of all the surrounding mountains.

And there has actually been some fresh snow has fall overnight on the top area of the courses at Grandeco.

Around base area unfortunately it was rain...

We didn't expect new snow so it is great to see the upper areas with a fresh dusting.

The wind this morning is gentle, temperatures remain quite low, so it should be relatively good conditions this morning.

Still 3000m from the top of gondola station to the bottom is available.

No.2 lift will open today instead of the No.1 lift. These changes will sometimes happen in spring season.

The Snow Park has now closed for the season.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily until the end, some will become less than daily now that we are in 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.
