The snow is falling lightly in the village this morning with a moderate wind blowing from the North. The snow will not amount to much in the village but the upper mounatains may get up to 10cm by lunch time when the snow is forecast to subside.

Tomorrow's forecast is for a clear but cool day with the remainder of the week through to Sunday looking like warm and sunny weather. This will probably mean Spring snow on the weekend for most ski areas and some grass showing through for lower lying ski areas.

Backcountry
With the approach of Spring the snowpack can undergo some intense warming creating a heavy isothermic layer(same temperature) for part or sometimes the whole pack. With a relatively shallow snow pack this season Spring could hold some full layer "zenso" (to the ground) avalanches.
Recently witnessed avalanches on South faces suggest that the upper snowpack has undergone such warming and has been releasing on a weak layer up to 100cm. Caution is advised on steep and Southern facing terrain.
