Alpine forecast

The snow depth is holding strong across resorts.

Following a mild spell and a brief period of snowfalls and wintry showers late over the weekend, generally 2-5cm of fresh snow will have fallen across resorts. However, at least some melting is likely each day next week.

There is also a good chance of a few more flurries just prior to the long-weekend, before conditions look to clear up to provide some quality slope time.
