Alpine forecast

Skiing conditions are deteriorating due to warmth and rain. Although once it's done chilly nights will lead to good snow-making conditions.

Rain will fall during Tuesday/Wednesday and late Friday/early Saturday. A front will then help rain turn to snow at the resorts this weekend.

A high will then take over, leading to cold nights, fit for snow-making, but warmer days.

Rain is then likely during Thursday 8th/Friday 9th before a colder spell increases the chance of fresh snow early in the following week.
