Alpine forecast

Cold fronts will bring fresh snow this weekend, as much as about 5cm over the main resorts.

Next week will stay cold with help from a few passing weak fronts, great for further snow-making. The fronts will only bring odd brief light dusting of fresh snow to the main resorts, mainly late in the week.

A better chance for fresh snow is during the first week of July when a decent cold front-or-two becomes more likely.
