A ski resort in the Pyrenees arranged for around 50 tonnes of snow to be dropped on its slopes. Taken from higher mountains, the snow was dumped on slopes for beginners and children.
Temperatures have risen above 10 ºC across the Pyrenees this week, leaving ski slopes devoid of snow.
In order to keep the ski resort open, the local council arranged for snow to be sent at a cost of more than 5,000 euros（£4,150）.
The director of the local council said it was a worthwhile investment. The school holidays in February and March are typically the busiest time of year for ski resorts in France.
However, the delivery of snow has been criticised by environmental groups. The director conceded that moving the snow was not a "particularly ecological" solution but said "we had no choice".
