Alpine forecast

The weekend is shaping up to be the time to hit the snow with good falls on Thursday & Friday followed by clear skies and light winds by Saturday.

After a few chilly nights and days a more plentiful system should scatter 10-20cm of fresh snow across the resorts during Thursday night/Friday. This will leave a handy cover of fresh, dry powder for this weekend which may still be graced with a few more light snow showers on Saturday.

Next week looks cold enough for further snowmaking in between bursts of fresh natural snow. The natural snow depths may have reached new season highs by the following weekend.
