Snapshots of a historic season

The downside was that back in January, some ski resorts had to close down the slopes due to the risk of avalanche. Crews worked around the clock to restore access and provide the necessary safety environment for skiers.

January had few days without snowfall. As a result, the Catalan Pyrenees became a postcard. Many photos perpetuating such beautiful scenery, have traveled through social networks, and many ski resorts encouraged skiers to immortalize such beauty.

In Baqueira Beret, for instance, they recorded 36 feet of snow on their 1800 meter mark in early February, a total record.

Snow machines, vital in recent years, have barely been used this season, which will be extended beyond Easter Week.

If you have yet to come up to the Pyrenees. There’s still time!
