Good morning from Grandeco.

It is a beautiful Sunday morning with blue skies and a bit of cloud.

Temperatures are keeping pretty cold and the snow condition is a little hard but not icy yet. The ski courses look nicely groomed, the weather is good, it will be a good day for skiing!

It is also getting easier and easier to climb up to Mt. Nishidaiten because of the snow condition.

Even in good visibility day like today, do not follow other people's tracks when you hike up. Bring your GPS and maps to check directions. Also remember to take food, water and extra warm clothing.
