Resort to Open in French Pyrenees a Week Ahead of Alps

J2SkiNews posted Nov-2018

A ski resort in the French Pyrenees has announced it will open this weekend a week earlier than the scheduled openings of some slopes at Chamonix and Val Thorens.

Porté-Puymorens, along with most ski areas in the Pyrenees, saw large end-of-October snowfalls and has since seen more snow on top. It is reported to currently have a 15-30cm base.
"We're working like crazy to offer the best sliding conditions for this weekend. There will be a minimum of two sectors open," a resort spokesperson said.

The ski slopes will open at 9am on Saturday and a weekend adult ski pass is priced at 40 €

Mesella on the other side of the Pyrenees had its earliest ever opening when the Spanish resort opened a week ago.

Tignes was the first French resort to open for winter 18-19 in mid-October offering glacier skiing, but Porté-Puymorens currently looks set to be the first French non-glacier ski area to open for winter18-19.
