Alpine forecast

The season is beginning to wind down, but there is still fresh snow on the way.

A front has just brought 4-8cm of snow to the main resorts. Coming up we have a few cold nights, good for snowmaking. After some warming and snow melt later this week, the next snow-bearing systems and cold air will move through between Sunday and next Tuesday. A likely 10-15cm of fresh snow will make up for some of the melt.

There is also a fair chance of a bit more fresh snow just prior to the long-weekend with help from a likely passing front or two.
