Alpine forecast

The next few days will see the winds really whip up around the mountains as several fronts pass over adding to an excellent base.

Throughout the week there will be some fresh flurries to play with as a series of fronts swing through. The models are chopping and changing a little at the moment regarding resort-wide snow amounts for the week. It should be a good outcome and hopefully enough to give the snow makers a week off.

Other than the fresh snow over the week, it will be very cold - so many warm layers will be required. Be aware on the roads, as they may become icy at times.
