The inhabitants of Aveyron in the Pyrenees had a complicated Monday morning on the roads, December 6, due to slippery roads and snowfall. The situation improved during the day, to keep only the pleasure of a thick white carpet at altitude.
Put on your skis and get on the sledges, little pleasures of freshly fallen snow. In the village of Barèges (Hautes-Pyrénées), at the foot of the Pic du Midi, the inhabitants woke up under a thick white coat. More than a meter of snow fell overnight, to the delight of young and old. In some places, you can barely make out the vehicles hidden under the snow.
At altitude, officers clear the roads leading to villages and ski resorts, which have just opened. “We could not believe it any more! But there, with two weekends of snow in a row, there will be plenty for the whole season”, rejoices one of them, aboard a snow plow. In the area of La Pierre Saint-Martin (Pyrénées-Atlantiques), there was so much snow that the skiers were deprived of sliding, the resort having been forced to close.
