It’s Golden week at Appi and it’s the last official week you’ll be able to ski for the 2017 Season.

Clear blue skies today with very light winds and a warm 18 degrees at the base. The crews have been working overtime to move what snow we have left to the central runs to make sure they’re open this week. It may look threadbare but its still lots of fun out there. Shorts, T-Shirt, sunscreen and skis are all you need today to end the season with a bang.

The next few days should be quite busy here and although the snow is still melting the few runs that remain open will be busy. They’ll be a full season report coming your way soon. Until then I’m heading out to grab some slush...
