Good morning from Grandeco.

Good news this morning.

The forecast told us to expect a bit of snow last night but I'm happy to report that 12cm of fresh snow has fallen by early morning and it is still falling at the moment (9am).

The upper course around the gondola peak station is covered with some nice fresh snow.

Due to the current snowfall, visibility is limited. Take care out there skiing and boarding.

The course maintenance team is now preparing to open the remaining courses from tomorrow, please wait for more on that in the report tomorrow.
