Alpine forecast

A great weekend of spring skiing to be had. Blue skies, light winds and some fresh snow make it perfect to get up on the mountain.

Get up early on Father's Day for the best of the conditions before cloud and wind increase into the afternoon ahead of the next snow bearing system to start the week.

5-10cm will fall on Monday and Tuesday with a cold front before a high brings a return to sunny skies for the rest of the week.
