Alpine forecast

This weekend is amazing to be on the slopes. If you have missed out, don't fret, as next weekend is looking just as great.

The main resorts have all seen around half a metre in the past week, with skies clearing and winds easing on Saturday to reveal amazing conditions for this point in the season.

During the week we will see relatively calm and cold conditions allowing for consistent overnight snow-making. On Thursday into Friday the next major frontal system will cross the southeast, with totals likely to be near 20cm for the event across the board, potentially heavier.

Then, just like this weekend, a high pressure system will move overhead, bringing wonderful weather conditions to enjoy the fresh powder.

Fronts are looking fairly consistent in the following week, beginning from about Tuesday 5th July.
