Good morning from a snowy looking Grandeco.

There's 2cm of fresh snow at base this morning and nice to see a fresh layer all around - and more on the slopes of course.

According to the forecast, it should be snowing all day; we are expecting more snow so hopefully I'll have more good news to bring tomorrow.

The snow conditions are a little wet as things remain relatively mild at the moment.

There is snow on the road as well, be careful, very slippery. Of course, snow tires are necessary.
