Snow farming at Bessans

A pile of snow under sawdust

As there’s still snow, we’re storing it for next year.

This is the snow farming technique : we make a pile of snow at the end of the season ; we protect it all summer long under a layer of sawdust ; we put it back on the slopes at the beginning of the next season. It allows the opening of the cross-country ski trails in Bessans at the end of October. Do you remember ?
