As every year since 2018, the cross-country ski resort of Bessans is the first in France to open its slopes. The first tracks are available by means of snow-farming. The resort stored 16,000m3 of snow at the end of last winter under a thick layer of sawdust and spread it over the biathlon ring this week.
