Alpine forecast

Grey skies are going to clear over the coming days, and conditions throughout the resorts are excellent for this time of year.

The huge snowfalls will compact a few centimetres over the coming days, but clearing skies will make for great days on the slopes. Sub-zero temperatures over the coming nights means the snow makers will be adding plenty to the natural depth.

The cold front due this weekend is looking a bit less promising than previous forecasts, but we should still see a few centimetres fall. There is model disagreement as to the timing of another cold front towards the end of the fortnight, but some snowfalls look likely around that time.
