Good morning from a snowy Grandeco.

There was some snowfall last night - not a huge amount - and it should be snowing through tomorrow. I hope I can report more good news with it piling up into tomorrow.

Temperatures are keeping cold so the snow conditions are not bad, not icy or wet. New fresh layers will only improve on that of course.

The Number 3 lift and some additional courses beside the lift should be opening from tomorrow.

Enjoy your weekend.
