Alpine forecast

Conditions will become progressively windier today and wetter as a low pressure system crosses the region, which is not great news for the slopes. Most areas will see rain into Thursday, which will fall as snow about the upper resorts, although only a few centimetres are likely.

Another system will move through later this week, bringing several more centimetres, with lower resorts also likely to see some falls.

As we move further into September, sunnier conditions will prevail making for great spring skiing, however it will begin to get warmer making it slushier. A cold front could arrive mid-way through the month giving resorts another top up.
