Given the interference of the German Chancellor, from VOX Granada they have insisted that, as the European Commission (EC) declared this week, “each EU member country must decide whether to open its ski resorts, because the decision of Allowing it is a national competence ”, so it is the Government of Spain that must put in place all the mechanisms for this to be done.
This weekend the competition teams of the Andalusian Federation of Winter Sports (FADI) have trained on the slopes of Borreguiles de Sierra Nevada. "This shows that following the safety and protection protocols to avoid contagion by COVID19, the practice of sport is safe in the Granada ski resort," Manuel Martín Montero has added.
