It is believed to be the first resort to open in the mountain range for winter 2009-10.
The resort currently has seven easy blue and intermediate red graded trails open, with four lifts operating, including two of the resort's six person chairs.
Snow depths range from 50 - 80cm (20 - 32 inches) with 40cm (15binches) of that newly fallen and conditions described as ‘powder.'
Having opened at the weekend the lifts are now closed until next weekend when the same area, in the pas de la Casa sector, will stay open from Saturday 21st November to the scheduled opening day of 28th November when more terrain will be open.
During the early, limited area opening, tickets are just 10 Euros a day for children, 20 euro a day for adults.
