Alpine forecast

We got some good snowfall over the last few days, just enough to top up the wet packed snow just underneath. Luckily, we got a few more days of light snowfall to come adding another centimetre or two to the depths. However, visibility will be pretty poor around the slopes, so be careful out there.

Monday is looking to be a gorgeous bluebird day. Light winds the night before will also make it an ample opportunity to fire up the snow guns to top up the natural powder. It will be mostly sunny and cold on Tuesday morning before some cloud increases throughout the day ahead of a trough.

Another rainfall event will make it gusty and slushy around the Alps from Wednesday, so make sure to get in a board or ski before then!
