Alpine forecast

An intense frontal system will impact the region between Thursday 29th and Saturday 1st, bringing heavy rain on its leading edge, before much colder air pushes in behind later on Thursday, resulting in sizeable late-season snowfall totals for most resorts, particularly during Friday.

Conditions will not be overly favourable to hit the slopes, with strong winds and poor visibility accompanying the system. However, the weather situation will improve briefly, in time for the first half of the long weekend, before a rain-bearing system shows its hand on Monday 3rd, followed by decent if brief snow deposition into Wednesday 5th.
