In the resort of Leysin, Switzerland, the snow has melted as a result of mild temperatures throughout the last few days.

Skiiers can still be seen attempting to tackle the slopes, which are maintained by artificial snow machines.

Climatologists say the warmer winter is a result of El Niño, which has warmed the Pacific Ocean.

El Niño is thought to be behind a series of unusual weather events this year, and could make 2016 the hottest on record.
