Good morning from Grandeco.

Clear blue skies again this morning - some trees are becoming green, but there's still some white snow on the ground.

Not much now though... Grandeco is still keeping one course with 1km length open and the gondola and No.2 lift operating, but it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep the courses open. They are trying hard to move in snow from other areas to keep it open.

Due to the snow situation the resort has decided to close during the period 25th-28th April and then re-open on 29th April for the Golden Week holidays. The days closed will help them keep that course open for the important holiday period.

So basically the open days from now will be today, tomorrow, 29th April, 30th April and 1st-5th May. If there are enough snow, they will even try to extend until 8th May.

Gambatte-imasu ne!

A 1 day lift ticket (adult) will be 3600 yen during this period.
