Good morning from Grandeco.

It was snowing last night!

Just 1cm of snowfall but the mountains are definitely looking more white than yesterday.

It is actually very cold this morning but should start getting gradually warmer again over the next few days.

More cloud is expected tomorrow and some forecasts tell us to perhaps expect some rain.

---

There are no other ski resort open in Fukushima at this moment.

If the rainbow 3500 course becomes unusable, Grandeco will end the ski season and stop operating the Number 2 lift but will keep operating the Gondola until 8th May for sightseeing tourists and the kid's sled area which is located in near the gondola peak station.

Also, trekking guide tours to the Dekodaira marshlands which are a 30 minute walk from the gondola peak station will start from 1st May. It is a good tour to feel the early spring on the mountain. Snow boots rental is available for this tour.

Operating lifts:
Gondola and Number 2 lift

Opening courses:
Rainbow 3500 upper part (1km long. 5m wide)
