Alpine forecast

A little less snowfall is on the cards this week, but the winds will generally be much weaker, allowing for more pleasant conditions to be out on the slopes.

A weak front will bring some patchy snowfalls today, clearing into a few flurries on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will be dry, clear and relatively calm.

Next week should see an increase in frontal activity again, leading to some more appreciable falls of snow than during this week.
