Aubrac ski resort opening delayed

MidiLibre/Scoop, Dec 21

The first winter flakes have fallen in the ski resort Aubrac recently. The Laguiole ski station is preparing for the opening, hopefully for the Christmas period. Skiers are waiting anxiously, but so far, no date is available, because the snow layer is still too thin and the temperatures too warm to operate the snow cannons.

The opening of the Aveyron ski areas are highly anticipated. Laguiole hosts 20,000 to 30,000 skiers a year. Officials are worried though, because the opening has to be delayed this year. Christmas skiing is popular, and is an important part of the local tourist industry. The station would normally open this Saturday, but officials are waiting for more snow before they can announce the opening.
