Swiss Ski Season Delayed By Lack Of Snow

Swiss Ski Season Delayed By Lack Of Snow, The start of Switzerland’s ski season has been delayed by a shortage of snow across the Alps.

The country has experienced its driest autumn on record, meaning many slopes have yet to receive any snowfall, the BBC reports.

The largest resorts such as Davos and St Moritz have used snow cannons to open in time for the traditional start of the season, while many other slopes remain closed.

BBC correspondent Imogen Foulkes said the news is worrying for Swiss tourism, which has already taken a hit from the strong Swiss franc, which makes a skiing trip to Switzerland more expensive than going to France, Italy and Austria.

Snow was spotted in some parts of the Swiss Alps on Saturday, although experts said it wasn’t enough to mark the beginning of the ski season.

Ski resorts in neighbouring countries have also suffered from a lack of snow.
