Alpine forecast

Grey skies are clearing and conditions across the resorts are excellent for this time of year.

The huge snowfalls will compact by 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 mean the snow makers will be adding plenty to the natural depth.

The cold front due this weekend is only looking weak, but we should still see a few centimetres fall in the south.

The next best chance of fresh snow is late next week and the following weekend when a decent front is possible.
