But others still have up to two months of the 2007-8 ski season to go! Although dates are subject to change, many ski areas with glaciers are planning to stay open to May including Italy's Passo Tonale (1st) - recently extended with the gondola link to nearby Pragelato; Chamonix (8th), Tignes (11th) and Pitztal (18th) which has also installed new lifts and is soon to unveil a new Israeli snowmaking system invented as the by-product of a South African gold mine's cooling system and capable of making snow in positive temperatures!
Engelberg still has 8 weeks of the season left, with the lifts scheduled to ruin until May 25th. About that time, Riksgransen in the Swedish Arctic Circle, begins its period of 24 hour daylight with skiing under the midnight sun. Its season is likely to continue a month longer through to the end of June.
