Alpine forecast

A high will bring cold, dry nights until the weekend (perfect for snow-making) and excellent daytime visibility.

During this weekend a cold front will bring fresh snow, as much as 5-10cm over the main resorts.

Next week will begin mostly clear and stay cold, great for further snow-making. The next fresh snow-bearing system should arrive late in the week but falls only look light at this stage. A better chance for decent snow is during the following week.
