Well, from midnight it is going to be a wild week. The sky will gradually become completely overcast and the snow will start around midnight. The wind will be very strong and will blow hard for 3 days, it is going to be a busy week for the pisteurs. It is going to snow all day Tuesday, and the wind will be so gusty there is a chance of getting blown over in the villages. I expect the links between the resorts will be closed, and a late start for all the lifts. It will be a day for the low runs if you are lucky. The wind will be a little less gale like on Wednesday and there will be snow showers and brief sunny spells through the day. It looks like light snow will continue to around midday on Thursday when the sun will return, the wind will still be a problem. There will be a respite on Friday, the best day of the week with sunny periods and fluffy clouds, it will also be a lot warmer and the breezes will be light. It all goes down hill again on Saturday with high winds and snow; however, the snow line (which will have been below resort level for the week) will be quite high, about 1900m in the morning, dropping a little later, it could be an interesting transfer day!! As for the amount of snowfall, lets leave it at a lot by the weekend!
