More and more ski resorts in Sweden store snow for the next season. Thus they are able to open very early. Two of these ski resorts announced this week that they are planning to start the season in October. Ramundberget in Härjedalen will open on October 14, while Grönklitt in Orsa, Dalarna will open on October 28.
How long the cross-country tracks will be on the opening day, will depend on weather conditions. Last year Grönklitt had planned to open with 1.5 km on the first day. However, they managed to prepare as much as 30 km for the opening day (then November 3).
