With daily falls from 10 to 20cm, the calculation can be done quickly: about a metre of fresh snow accumulated over the past week.

In France the tallys include 130cm at La Mongie, 110cm at Nistos, 105cm at Artouste and 95cm in Luz Ardiden. There have been similar falls in Andorra and on the Spanish side with Skiinfo powder alarms for 30cm or more in 24 hours yesterday (Tuesday 7 February) at Baqueira Beret and Formigal.

With levels from 50 to 120 centimetres Formigal has now opened 86km of slopes and its Restaurant La Glera.

Today was a very sunny day there with temperatures from -5 to -12 degrees.
