Good morning from Grandeco.

How about this then....

15cm of fresh snowfall!

There was a snow mark on the forecast yesterday but I don't think anybody expect this much of snow to fall.

So this morning all the courses are covered with lovely fresh new snow and the official snow depth has increased again.

It should be great to enjoy fresh snow on the Melissa course this morning.

The Center 33 course (advanced course) is closing from today, but there are still 85% of the courses available at the resort.

It's calm now and the Gondola and Number 3 lifts are operating at normal speed.

It feels a little cold, keep warm when you ski.

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.
