A succession of Atlantic fronts has brought a mixture of snow and rain in the last few days. Now ski resorts are looking to the Christmas holidays optimistically. On Monday it snowed again in Madrid and snow is expected again all over Spain's Ski resorts in the next few days.
Baqueira currently has the most terrain open in the country with 77km. Formigal is a few kilometres behind with 71km and has some of the deepest snow at 90cm (three feet). Conditions have improved a lot in Masella (25-55 cm powder and 41km) and has opened today a new ski area served by a new chairlift called La Pia Express.
Sierra Nevada is reporting 20-100 cm of powder snow but it is currently closed due to the strong wind.
