Good morning from a snowy Grandeco.

We didn't expect any new snow fall this morning but when I got up, things had changed into "white world" again.

8cm of fresh snow on the ground at base and all courses have a nice new covering. The snow on the tree branches are so beautiful today. Ah, don't you just love winter and snow. It's sad in many ways when spring takes hold!

Anyway, visibility is not so good this morning because of the snowfall and there's some fog, but it will be a nice day to enjoy the upper courses and tree runs.

Very quiet ski ground today because of a few skiers, it is like your own private ski ground.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
