Good morning from Grandeco.

Sadly, rain is falling this morning.

It is also forecast to be raining until tomorrow, and we cannot expect snow with the mild temperatures. Trying to be positive, with the rain the snow will be easy to slide on!

90% of the courses are still open in Grandeco and there is still a lot of snow around.

Wear some water proof jacket and pants today.
