19 Feb 09 – “The ski area of Cauterets in the French Pyrenees has reported receiving more than five feet (160cm) of snow between 11th and 12th February and a further 280cm over the following 7 days!  The resort is currently reporting an impressive snow depth of 450cms on the upper slopes at 2415m.  

“The Pyrenees, which contains about 60 ski areas in France, Spain and Andorra, has had a particularly memorable winter with big snowfalls through the season.”

          “I've only once before heard of 4 metres of snow in one week,
           and that was in February 1990,” says Rhys.

          "Digging ski lifts out = global warming?”
