Madrid Set For Cold Snap

It looks like Madrid is set for some cold weather in the coming days. Temperatures in the capital are expected to drop below -4°C tonight and – 7°C in the mountains surrounding Madrid. The picture below is taken from the Royal residence of La Zarzuela, where snow has already fallen – let’s hope it sticks around for Christmas!

    Hi Sarah
    Skiing is “normally” available throughout the winter from early December till March – though this year it has arrived late. Yesterday (22nd January, 2007), saw much snow across Spain and by the looks of it a fair amount fell on Madrid’s mountains. I’m not sure what expensive is but I went skiing around 2 years ago and it seemed quite cheap.
