Good morning from Grandeco. Beautiful blue skies this morning.

The sunshine is very strong this morning - sunscreen and sunglasses are necessary.

The snow is soft sherbet condition and a good wax before going out is definitely recommended.

4km of ski course is available from top to base but the snow depth is decreasing every day as the days count down on the rest of the season now.

The advanced course Melissa is open - take No.3 lift.

Minowa ski hill will end their ski season today leaving just Nekoma and Grandeco as the remaining open ones in the region.

If you are looking for a snow park, choose Nekoma.

Grandeco is the place if you want to enjoy a 4km of long groomed course.
