Alpine forecast

Snow flakes are falling on the mountains thanks to the arrival of a cold front, and will continue to overnight into early Saturday morning alongside some gusty winds. Snowfalls will generally clear early Saturday, but by then 10-20cm of fresh natural snow should be greeting skiers and boarders at first lifts. Temperatures should stay below freezing so layer up well.

The odd flurry is possible later on Saturday and Sunday, then it should be blue bird skies to start the new week. Temperatures will also stay low enough for snow makers to top up the cover.

Another cold front is possible around the end of next week, but doesn't look as promising as the one currently crossing the mountains. Still, there are signs more snow is possible next weekend.
