Michael Bacher is determined to provide an alternative to the artificial snow commonly used to groom ski slopes. Rather than light, powdery snowflakes, snow cannons pump out tiny pellets of ice that are less enjoyable to ski on.
Many ski resorts in France exaggerated the length of their slopes. According to a study, some ski resorts in Switzerland also inflated their piste length.
The region of Engadin in eastern Switzerland offers skiers and snowboarders some of the best slopes in the world. It’s also where St. Moritz, one of Europe's most exclusive ski resorts, is located.
Thanks to the recent snowfall, the ski season will begin earlier than planned. The first resorts are already open in Germany. Many skiers are hoping for a winter of the century and resort operators too.
