Vic alps to get up to one metre of snow

An icy winter blast could dump a metre of much-needed snow on the Victorian Alps after a sluggish start to the ski season.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a blizzard warning for areas above 1400 metres in the high country on Thursday night, with forecasters tipping bumper snowfalls in coming days.

"(Alpine areas) could see about 50 centimetres all the way up to one metre over the next four days, which will be very good for the ski season," senior meteorologist Grace Legge said.
