However this year it has been benefiting from the same pounding that the south of France has been receiving from the snow gods and as we enter April it is officially the whitest corner of France with more than four meters of snow at 2350 meters. That is a record for France for 2009. Meteo France tells us they’ve not seen so much snow since they started monitoring on the island 30 years ago.
Our roving reporters say these figures don’t give the whole picture. 2009 has not been particularly cold, just snowy, and the situation lower down is not as good. For example last week in Corsica it was only possible to ski from 1300 meters on north facing slopes and that rose to 1500 meters on southerly aspects.
Anyway in true Daily Telegraph style talking about Corsica has given us a lame excuse to publish a picture of “La Casta”.
 According to Meteo France’s system of automatic monitoring stations.
