Alpine forecast

Plenty of fresh snow has brought a cracking start to the season with snow showers lingering for the next couple of days.

A deep complex low pressure system is moving away from the region which will allow winds and snow to ease however snow showers are likely to linger until Tuesday. Easing winds will allow for better visibility from Tuesday and ideal conditions on the slopes to enjoy all the recent fresh snow.

A high pressure system will bring clear skies and cold nights which will see the snow guns to fire up and help add to snow base.

The next front should arrive around Sunday but is unlikely to be as robust as the previous one.
