Storm Karlotta dumps snow on Sierra Nevada

The passage of storm Karlotta through the province of Granada is leaving, as expected, rain and snow.

The snowfall was intense, leaving more snow in the Sierra Nevada and a white blanket even in the Trevenque, so the snow has fallen at lower altitudes.

This leaves a completely wintry picture, somewhat better than the one seen at the beginning of this week, with a whiter Sierra and snow in lower areas, although it still does not reach the levels of other winters.

With Semana Blanca approaching there are 16 slopes open (10 skiable kilometres) as of Sunday February 11. The thickness of the snow ranges from 20 to 60 centimetres with powder snow quality.
