Who says you cannot ski in Belgium? More than 30 ski resorts are open in the south of the country this week.

Ski schools in Weywertz and Elsenborn have been busy, with a large number of sign-ups from Antwerp and Limburg provinces in particular.

In Luxembourg province, nine tracks are open to the public at Baraque Fraiture, Samrée, Gouvy, Martelange, Champlon and Saint-Hubert. The Senonchamps ski slopes are accessible between the hours of 13.00 and 17.00. The Maugires à Bertrix piste is open for the first time this season.

In Hainaut and Namur, slopes in Rieze (Chimay) and La Croix Scaille (Gedinne) are ready for skiers.
