The weather events in Christmas Day and during the next two ones made difficult for the managers to open the ski resort of Piancavallo. The rainfall in those three days eroded the snowpack, partly natural and partly produced by snowmaking system, on the ski runs.

The commitment, professionalism and the work of the Management and all the staff of Piancavallo resort let the skiers access at least part of the ski slopes, that were in good condition in spite of the storm.

A contribution was also given by the ski patrollers and ski rescuers who worked together with the staff of the resort to improve slopes’ safety condition, even removing outcropping rocks, both on the runs open to skiers and on those still closed to prevent the the stones from mixing to the snow that will be worked by snow groomer.
