Good morning Grandeco.

There's a beautiful blue-white contrast thing going on this morning. Lovely.

There was no snowfall last night but the temperature is keeping low and the courses are perfect groomed this morning.

Today is the middle day of "three days holiday" and that means that every ski ground will be crowded.

For people wanting to climb Mt. Nishidaiten, please fill in the mountain climbing sheet located by the ticket counter. Take the gondola and the Number 3 lift to hike up. It will take one and half hours from the top of the lift to Mt. Nishidaiten peak by foot.

The Fukushima local government is having a campaign for overseas visitors and here's some details:

A. People who were born between 1993-1998, foreign passport holders can get a free lift pass during 1 December 2016 - 31 March 2017.
B. Australian passport holders of all ages can get a one day lift ticket for 2,000 yen per person during 1 Dec. 2016 - 31 Mar. 2017.

If you are eligible and want to take advantage of this, please show your passport when you buy a ticket at Grandeco.
