2019-20 Season Underway in the Pyrenees

J2SkiNews posted Nov-2019

The 2019-20 ski season is now fully underway in the Pyrenees with ski areas open in Andorra joining leading areas on the French and Spanish sides of the border that opened at the weekend, joining a few smaller centres that opened early a week or two ago.

Although the region has not seen the huge snowfalls it did in late October last year or quite as big dumps as parts of the Alps this autumn, things are initially looking good with some healthy natural snowfalls as well as machine made snow.

The deepest snow to date is reported on the French side of the border where Cauterets, which opened early for the season last weekend (pictured above), has 180cm (6 feet) lying, also the deepest in France at present (Tignes, in second place, has 150cm/5 feet).

It opened its smaller area at Pont d'Espagne at the weekend but will open the main Cirque du Lys sector directly above the resort from this weekend.

On the Spanish side there's a major public holiday in early December and so areas in Andorra and Spain are keen to open before that.

All of the larger Spanish centres are open with Formigal reporting the most terrain skiable so far with more than 40 runs open and the deepest base on that side at 20-145cm

Down in the south of the country Europe's most southerly major ski area Sierra Nevada has also opened, reporting 80cm of snow lying on upper slopes and 30 runs open.
