The Spanish Meteorlogical Agency has issued warnings for heavy, snowfall in the Alpujarra, Guadix, Baza and Huéscar starting Friday.
The publicly owned company, Cetursa, that manages the whole of the skiing complex on Sierra Nevada decided to close the season earlier than normal, which with the late snowfalls at the beginning of April, did not amuse the rest of the businesses up there; restaurants, hotels and shops.
Skiing holidays are becoming ever more popular and with more people on the ski slopes the likelihood of an accident is also on the increase.
Even before summer had officially ended, we had our first snowfall up in the Sierra Nevada. On the 13th of September there was a light snowfall around the 3,000-metre mark.
