Alpine forecast

Rain developing on Sunday will turn to snow after dark when a cold front arrives. The front delivering this snow will be backed up by another 48 hours later, combining to scatter 25-50cm of fresh powder across the main resorts through to Thursday. Not as cold, as snowy or blowy as a week ago but still a vigorous few days and potentially leading to the deepest snow of the season, 1.4-2.2 metres at the main resorts.

With that sort of depth, next weekend has potential to be one of the best of the season. Saturday - clear skies and gentle winds. Sunday - some bonus snow showers with wind staying down.

The several days to follow look drier with relatively light snow showers due to the likelihood of fronts being fairly weak.
