News From Around the Ski World 

A number of Spanish ski resorts have announced they’re extending their season after a couple of weeks of low temperatures and heavy snowfall has transformed conditions. The base depths have increased from a meagre 50cm to a mighty 2.5m in some resorts in the Aragonese Pyrenees.

There’s been continued heavy snowfall in the Aosta Valley. I spent the week based in Aosta skiing boot top to knee deep powder at Pila, Cogne and Chervacol. The snow was deeper the further east you went with over a metre falling in the Monterosa ski area. And there was more over the weekend and more on the way.
