Alpine forecast

With some fresh snow on the ground and sunshine galore, it is a wonderful time to be hitting the snow.

Mother nature did a great job delivering a few centimeters of snow over the fast few days to lend a hand to the snow making efforts. The sun is now out, the winds are light and the conditions are simply perfect to be on the slopes.

The next snow looks like arriving late on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th, bringing a good few centimeters.

Next week should be an interesting one, with a train of cold fronts lining up to give the snow guns a much deserved break. From Friday 10th to around Thursday 16th, it looks like there could be snow falling most days, so watch this space!
