Good morning from Grandeco.

No rain, a gentle wind, a calm and quiet morning this Saturday.

Snow depth is decreasing every day but there's still a lot around especially on the courses.

Soft spring snow conditions and not icy - a good waxing of the skis or board is recommended.

There's no snow on the roads now but careful in the early morning or evening - it can be icy at times.

There is no snow forecast for the coming week (maybe something around the middle of the month?)

Enjoy the spring skiing.
