Spain's Formigal ski resort plans to open this weekend.

Switzerland: Engelberg was virtually closed down by snow at the start of the week as a massive storm hit central Switzerland with over three feet of fresh snow. St. Moritz and the Engadin Valley received 1.3m (4.4ft). Most other Swiss resorts have done well, too. Sedrun, for example, received about a metre (three feet) of new snow on November 30th.

The good snow news isn’t just restricted to the 2010 Winter Olympic host. Most of Western Canada’s resorts have great snow cover, and several more resorts either opened early last weekend. Others announced they’d be opening earlier than planned in coming weeks, including Fernie and Kicking Horse.
