The ski area now has 18km of runs, and has been extended down to Trockener Steg, with the opening of the Furggsattel Chairlift and the Theodul T-Bar and their associated pistes, which means that you can ski back to the top of the Matterhorn Express. The link to Cervinia is now also continuously open. The cold nights have enabled snow making to begin lower down, which is creating a good base for the next snowfall to settle upon. This use of man-made snow as a foundation is one of the key ways of ensuring that the pistes will remain in good conditions all the way through to the end of the season.
