Alpine forecast

Skiers can finally look forward to a bit of a base of snow as a cold front sweeps through tomorrow (Thursday 2nd).

The airmass with this front will be quite cold, so all resorts will pick up several centimetres. In the front's wake, there will be some frigid nights, meaning snow guns will be firing to build on the fresh snow.

Another front will arrive around Monday 6th/Tuesday 6th, with a chance of some places picking up as much as 10cm, mostly the higher resorts.

Things look more encouraging in the second week with a pair of fronts likely to bring further snowfalls.
