Many of the areas which were impacted are at decrease altitudes; a number of ski areas at increased altitudes within the Alps and Pyrenees are nonetheless open for enterprise. The French resort Val Thorens, which sits at greater than 7,540 toes (2,500 meters) above sea degree, for example, is still open and covered with snow.

But the toasty temperatures, mixed with different impacts, like rain and wind, have even pressured among the higher-altitude ski areas to shut. In Switzerland, the Splügen resort, which sits at an altitude of greater than 4,920 toes (1,500 meters) above sea degree, has needed to close all its runs until further notice because of “lack of snow, heavy rainfall and high temperatures.”
