At last the snow has arrived in the Pyrenees. Had a great day skiing at Peyragudes, plenty of excellant snow, approx 1,5m on the top. Much better than all that artificial stuff!! Was very cold, started the day at -12C, and then warmed up to a nice -5C, but the sun shon all day. Not too many people as it's before the school holiday period in February. All the Pyrenees resorts are saying excellant conditions now. Most have been closed for 2-3 days during the heavy snow, digging out lifts and trying to clear the roads. But all seem to be ok now.
