No snow at the mo, but it's coming

Thomas Hough, Saturday June 6, 2020 - 14:09 EST

Whilst the long weekend normally marks the start of snow season, this year is looking a little different.

Although the slopes are empty of the usual holiday skiers and snowboards due to Covid-19, they aren't empty of snow. Some early season falls have given the mountains a white coat for the start of winter with signs of more on the way.

The first week of the season will be dominated by high pressure, with snow-bearing cold fronts kept much further to the south. Whilst this means no decent natural falls in the next week, it does mean that the snow guns can get to work under clear skies and cold nights.

Natural snowfall isn't far away however with high pressure giving way late next week as a cold front pushes its way east. Sunday and Monday next week are the days to keep an eye on, with 10-20cm of fresh snow possible. This combined with the snow guns give a decent base for when resorts open towards the end of the month.
