Good morning from Grandeco.

The blue skies are with us again this morning.

Observed snowfall at base is only 1cm, however there are many places on the slopes where there'll be more so it should be fun finding the fresh this morning.

The lifts will be operating for longer this weekend (16:30).

According to weather forecast, snow should be falling once again from this evening, so fingers crossed there'll be more fresh on the ground in time for opening time tomorrow.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into 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.
