Snow Resort Cams - Weather now

Alpine forecast

There is unlikely to be worthwhile fresh snow between now and Sunday 5th apart from some light falls on the highest peaks at times. From the night of Sunday 5th to Tuesday 7th fresh snow becomes more likely as a cold front impacts, potentially amounting to more than 10cm on the highest peaks but little at resort level. Sleet may fall as low as about 1500 metres at night. Any fresh snow which falls at resort level is unlikely to stay on the ground for long.

The next best chance of another snow-bearing system or two is from about Thursday 9th when all resorts have a better chance of gaining some in the lead-up to the opening weekend. It looks like being cold enough on most nights for snow-making top ups, at least on the highest runs.
