On Saturday, around 20 Cross-country and alpine ski resorts in the Eastern Cantons and Luxemburg province were accessible. This was announced by the Tourist Agency for the East and the Belgian Luxemburg Tourist Federation. The layer of snow in the different resorts varies between 15 and 50 cm, for some resorts in Luxemburg.
Alpine skiing possibilities went up by 20% with the opening of the Ovifat slope, after the Mont des Brumes (Francorchamps), Thier des Rexhons (Spa), Wanne and Baraque Fraitue slopes.
There was 20 to 30 cm layer on the slopes on Friday.
