Ski resorts may extend season

National News // March 1, 2018

Some ski resorts are pondering extending the season as the snow is so good. Andermatt in canton Uri is suggesting the slopes may stay open until Whitsun, which is the 20th May.

Stefan Kurn, spokesman for the resort, says there is plenty of snow and skiing beyond the normal end of the season should be possible.

Also Laax in Graubünden is considering staying open for longer, but a spokeswoman says although they have plenty of snow – it may soften quickly. But they’re keeping the situation under review. It’s already been decided the snow park will stay open an extra week as softer snow suits the boarders.
