Bansko operated a slightly wider range of terrain on by Monday 17th, with 5 lifts serving 5 slopes, with skiing down to resort level where the temperature was sitting solidly above freezing. The conditions were far more favourable at higher altitudes, with 50cm of snow on the ground. Borovets (50/60cm) opened this past weekend, aided by snowfall on Friday evening resulting in some promising coverage on the upper mountain as the skiing kicked off. There is the potential for another moderate dump of snow growing heavier over the day and continuing into Tuesday.
Spindleruv Mlyn (0/50cm) was spinning 5 lifts on Monday 17th, with a good degree of coverage across the pisted terrain among the trees. Temperatures are forecast to stay mild for the early part of the week, with the potential for fresh snowfall later on. Rosa Khutor (5/149cm) was reporting by far the most substantial upper piste depth in Eastern Europe, with great coverage across the upper slopes and plenty of off piste opportunities available. Despite this, the snowpack is relatively soft due to unseasonably mild temperatures. One resort in which there was fresh snow was Poiana Brasov (20/53cm), where reduced visibility and light snowfall were the main factors in the skiing conditions.
