The Sierra Nevada awoke yesterday morning to the first snowfall of the season, although, judging by the webcams up there, there wasn’t a lot left by dusk.
According to the company that runs the ski slopes, Cetursa, there was a sheet of snow above 2,800 metres yesterday morning but the webcams that evening (18.30h) show that most of it had gone.
In fact, the snow arrived one day after Cetursa Sierra Nevada published its protocol for Covid-19 this 2020-2021 season: obligatory face masks for children over six on the ski station; in the restaurants, hotels, shops; i.e., all enclosed public areas, as well as on the chair lifts and on the waiting areas for them,
Cetursa has also been busy testing out its one-hundred, new, latest-generation snow cannons (TR10 & TL6).
Update 13.30h: Don’t trust the webcams because the snow is on Mulacen south-east side, as this photo hows.The webcams are on the Pradollano side under La Valeta peak shows
