Skiing not guaranteed over the holidays

Rising temperatures threaten the snow security of the ski areas. According to a new study, skiing over Christmas can no longer be guaranteed in the coming decades, even with artificial snowmaking.


Only possible thanks to snowmaking: Adelboden-Lenk is fighting against a lack of snow.

A team of researchers from the University of Basel used the Andermatt-Sedrun-Disentis ski area as an example to investigate the impact that climate change will have on the ski areas. Their results were recently published in the International Journal of Biometeorology.

According to the study, artificial snow can guarantee a 100-day ski season, at least in the higher parts of the ski area – over 1800 meters above sea level. But for business during the Christmas holidays, it is likely to become scarce in the coming decades, as it often does not get cold enough beforehand.
