SKIERS and snowboarders are rejoicing after a long-awaited snowfall led to many Sierra Nevada pistes opening.
This winter’s ski season has so far been extremely disappointing, with a lack of snow leaving much of the resort bare.
However, a recent flurry of heavy snowfall means there are now 54 pistes open measuring a total of 45km.
This morning the resort, Europe’s southernmost, described the new snow as ‘powdery’ and 1 metre deep.
It is now predicted that the majority of the Sierra Nevada’s 107km of pistes will be in operation by the end of February.
