Alpine forecast

As much as 50-80cm of snow has already fallen since Wednesday, rebounding snow depths well beyond 150cm at the main resorts.

Brisk winds and snow showers are now easing. with just a few light snow showers left on Saturday morning as winds back off across the weekend. It will be one of the best weekends of skiing and boarding of the season so far.

Thankfully next week will remain pretty cold, with further snow showers early in the week. This should take snow depths close to season highs by the end of the week.

During the last week of August there should be a few passing weak fronts, bringing light snowfalls on some days.
