Good morning from Appi,

Currently cloudy with some light snow falling and a temperature of -2. We can expect about another 15cm of snow today and a lot more coming tomorrow and Thursday. Great news for all heading this way.

Relatively light winds the rest of the week and stable temperatures of around -4 all week too. Let's all hope the snow arrives as planned.

The runs are in decent shape but you can expect the upper runs to be cloud covered most of the day with reduced visibility. Still any day on the slopes is better than a day in the office.

Have a great day out there.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
