Ski resorts open in Europe

Not all ski resorts are open, certainly, but high-mountain resorts report significant snowfall.

In Austria, the routes are open on the Hintertux glacier, which already has 75 cm (30 inches) of snow. In Kaprun there is 100 cm (more than 3 ft) of snow.

In Switzerland, the slopes on Zermatt are covered with a 60-cm (2 ft) layer of snow. There is even more snow in Saas-Fee.

Some resorts in Italy are also open. The best conditions can be found in Passo Stelvio, with almost a meter and a half of snow and more than half of the trails are open.

In France, only Tignes is open so far, as there is only 20 cm of snow there.

  1. Speaking of ski resorts, what ever happened with the ski resorts in California that were open on July 4? Did they ever close? Was there some snow on the ground all summer? Is it still there?
