Alpine forecast

There was a nice top up of snow yesterday and early this morning, which is perfect timing for school holidays.

With conditions beginning to settle down over the next few days, it is a great time to visit the resorts. There could a be few light rain showers over the weekend, but generally visibility will be pretty good.

The next snow-bearing system will arrive late on Monday 4th into Tuesday 5th. At this stage we should see an additional 10-20cm out of this system, but there is potential for heavier falls on Tuesday if the conditions remain suitable.

Beyond that, a high pushes in leading a decent block of great weather and cool enough conditions for overnight snow making.
