Last week some pretty heavy snow fell on the mountains surrounding Madrid, though I am not sure whether enough fell for the ski resorts to open. For those who don’t know you can actually go skiing in the mountains surrounding Madrid – the ski resorts are under an hour from the city centre. Last year was pretty good for Madrid’s skiers as some great snow fell.

Thanks to my brother-in-law Vicen for this.
