Hello from Appi,

Well the snow came yesterday but not as much as we would have hoped but nonetheless it came and as opposed to last weeks it’s back to the dry snow we all love around here. Cloudy skies right now with light winds and a temperature of -2.

The clouds will stay around for the next few days with the temperature a stable -2 to -4 on the slopes. We may see another cm or so of snow but nothing really significant. After that it’s partly cloudy skies into the weekend with winds hardly picking up which should make conditions fairly good on the mountain.

It should be a great day up there today with relatively little traffic to speak of.

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.
