GRA Sierra Nevada AerialYes, tomorrow,  Saturday the 23rd, Sierra Nevada opens its ski slopes for the season. The date was in question but recent snowfalls have pushed away any doubts.

The Manager of Cetursa Sierra Nevada, Jesús Ibáñez, explained that machinery and personnel had been out working on the Loma de Dílar, Monte Bajo and even the higher areas to provide as much skiable area as possible.

The lead up has seen 39, new, snow cannons in the Río area working continuously, thanks to a 9m-euro investment this year. These new machines have double the output in comparison with the older ones.

The arrival of the high-speed-rail link for Granada is probably reflected in the 30% increase in reservations this year.
