World's Biggest Resorts Open For Winter 09-10 (07-Dec-09)

Ski Info, December 7, 2009 - Many of the world's leading ski resorts

Many of the world’s leading ski resorts have opened for the 2009-10 ski season this weekend following heavy snowfall in the Alps, Dolomites, Pyrenees and lower temperatures in Eastern North America allowing for snowmaking.

In the French Alps, Courchevel and Meribel joined Val Thorens opening in the Three Valleys and in Austria the Arlberg opened a week later than planned after a spell of warm weather ended with falls of several feet of snow. 

In the Pyrenees most of the leading resorts in Andorra, France and Spain all opened on Friday or Saturday after several feet on new snow fell. Baqueira Beret and Formigal, Spain’s two largest resorts were among those opening.

In New England resorts opening thanks to improved conditions include Sugarloaf in Maine, and further north in Quebec, Mont Ste Anne has opened after several postponed dates.

Over on the West, Fernie and Revelstoke in British Columbia have also opened.
