    Snow and cold have taken over Europe over the past few weeks and despite not facing the minus double digits like the rest of France, Corsica is now covered with snow and cold enough for it to stick. On the Plateau d'Ese, near the village of Bastelica, one can spend a great time skiing and snowboarding. Altitude tops 2400m, there are only 4 ski lifts but it's a great place to escape for the week-end with a small restaurant and equipment rental also available. For those of you lucky enough to visit Corsica in winter (best seasonal food, fabulous hikes, hunting, friendly locals...), it is a nice and fun day out. For the locals, it's heaven to be able to escape to the slopes at the week-end. For cross-country ski, one can also try "plateau du coscione" and "col de Vergio". It is quite rare that Corsica do not get snow on a year. Best chances are in February and March
