Sun is shinning at Grandeco Resort once again today.

There was a bit of rain last night, but it hasn't effected the snow depth too much and the snow should be faster than it has been in the past few days. Sunscreen and sunglasses are in order for the slopes again today for sure. Be careful not to end up with a sunburn. The sun is stronger than you might think.

All the courses are groomed packed snow warming up to spring conditions in the afternoon. The snow is melting little by little, but you can still ski from top to bottom on over 4km of vertical terrain.

There are strong gusts of wind from the North from time to time, but this should mellow out as the day progresses.

Keep an eye on the forecast below... there's even the promise of some snow on there for late weekend/Monday!

Nekoma will be closed between 19th-21st and 26th-28 April but these resorts all plan to be open until 5th May ---- whether they can do that or not will totally depend on the snow levels of course, which are less than usual and less than expected.
