"The snow depth and quality is excellent, but the risk of avalanche is high, and we are strongly advising our customers to stay on the marked pistes." said Vincent Doutres, lift company manager at Cauteret-Lys.
Elsewhere in the Pyrenees another 50cm (20 inches) of snow fell across Andorra's mountains on Monday continuing the superb season there, "We have a lot of snow this winter , it's fantastic and I hope skiers will continue to come until the first of May!" Ski Andorra's Marta Rotes told Skiinfo.com.
Skiing in Spain also continues to be excellent across the country with the largest fresh accumulations at Baqueira Beret (95cm/over three feet). Most resorts have upper slope base depths of over two metres (nearly seven feet) with Sierra Nevada in the south boasting the post with a 350cm (nearly 12 feet) base. Formigal, which has one of Europe's most expensive lift tickets, is offering free tickets to UK citizens for the rest of the winter.
