Great to be a snowboarder in Europe....

Some resorts haven't even closed for the summer....
With skiing and snowboarding continuing at a few European ski areas all year round, it is difficult to know when last winter ends and this winter begins. But some glacier resorts that closed in the Spring or Summer re-open in September and stay open right through to next Spring 2009, so September seems the best candidate for the month of the year in which to declare the new ski season 2008-9 officially underway!

Fortunately, mother nature is playing ball too, with snow in the Alps last weekend. Although it is not yet open, reported that Val d’Isere received 9cm (just under four inches) of fresh snow at the weekend with more forecast later this week, building up their base ready for the season. It was a similar story across many other ski areas and works in partnership with the resorts to deliver the latest conditions several times daily.

But, but, ski resorts in the Alps were supposed to close because of global warming! Al promised us!
