Alpine forecast

The week has started cold with some light snow, adding a bit to the snow depths which are at near-season-highs.

A few more flurries will fall this Wednesday night/Thursday, this weekend and early next week due to passing weak fronts. Mid next week, the natural snow cover at the main resorts should be about as deep as it is now. These fronts won't bring a lot of fresh snow but will maintain the cold to help out with snow-making.

Unfortunately, the next best chance of a decent snow-bearing system is not until about a week into September.
