Skiing on the Swiss Alps Picture: Passion Read

According to Daily Mail the popular skiing region has in recent years seen high temperatures which led them to use fake snow to keep holiday makers happy but that also will be canned due to lack of rain.
The lack of snow has been threatening ski season across Europe with some popular destinations completely shutting down due to the water shortage. 
Weather experts noted that countries like Switzerland and Italy were the driest and warmest in hundreds of years.
The World Meteorological Organization said in November that 2016 was the hottest year on record across the world.
Apparently the ski season looked good in November when a sudden drop in temperature brought with it a fresh dump of snow, but an anticyclone in December melted it all away.
Very little snow has fallen since, leaving the slopes bare and the resorts empty.
