The next month
A fine and sunny weekend coming up and with a good cover of snow at all resorts. It would be a good time to hit the slopes as we are going to see a dramatic change over the next week with a lot of rain to come. We have now hit peak depth for Season 2016 and the snow melt has begun.

Tuesday will see light showers developing overnight and continue into Wednesday with some heavy falls at times. This will cause a bit of damage to the existing cover, but unfortunately this is not the worst of it.

Late on Thursday showers should develop again and then we should see very heavy rain across Friday and into Saturday the 3rd. I'm hoping this system downgrades over the next week because what the charts are showing at the moment would mean the end for a few resorts for the season.

As far as natural snow goes there is a weak system due around the 7th that could bring a few cms.

Long range the 10th-11th and the 14th-15th of September could see some more snow falling.
