European Ski Resorts Turn Yellow With Blanket Of Sand From Sahara Desert

By

Sand and dust from the Sahara Desert was deposited on various mountain ranges from Spain to Switzerland over the weekend. The phenomenon creates a reddish-pink concoction when it mixes with snow.

A similar thing happened to Russian ski resorts a few years ago.

Take a look at pictures and videos captured of the ‘red snow’ across Europe.

Would you ski in these conditions?
