Appi Saturday,

Sunny skies with the clouds rolling in and a temperature of -1 outside. We did get more snow yesterday but not enough to be significant. Today the clouds should be on and off again all day and with the winds being relatively light it should be a fun start to the weekend.

Tomorrow should be equally nice with no snow forecast and a temperature of around -4 on the slopes. Looking ahead for next week we may see a deluge of snow coming our way on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. It’s promising nearly 50cm of snow - I hope you’re as excited as I am about that!

All the runs are open and in good shape too.

Get out there and have some fun before it all ends.

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.
