Good morning from Grandeco.

There are cloudy skies around Inawashiro town through into the Urabandai area, but it is snowing here at Grandeco this morning.

5cm of new snowfall around base last night, and it is still falling now.

This snow was not on the forecast so you can say we are lucky to get it.

The ski courses have been covered with this layer of soft new snow, so it should be a good day to enjoy skiing.

More snow forecast for tomorrow and then early week.
