Alpine forecast

The snow we have been waiting for is coming.

We experienced some light snow on the peaks on Monday afternoon and we will see a little bit more on Tuesday morning before mostly sunny and cool conditions briefly take hold mid-week.

From Thursday evening snow showers should become quite prevalent. At first snow showers should be fairly light, falling to around 1400 metres on Friday.

On Saturday a powerful cold front will cross, with some heavy falls a chance amid fairly windy conditions. The snow should then keep coming each day down to very low levels, possibly dropping to 800 metres on the alps on Monday or Tuesday next week. By this time next week there should be 20-50cm of fresh snow across the resorts.
