Alpine forecast

Mother nature will provide some persistent snowfalls over the Alps over the next week and a bit.

Several cold fronts will roll over the resorts, with Monday looking the most promising for some heavier falls in the 5-10cm mark, most other days falls will be lighter.

However, with these snow-bearing fronts we will see some very gusty winds which could lead to blizzard-like conditions at times. Also it is worth checking which roads are open and what the conditions on the roads are before you head off.
