Good morning from sunny Appi.

Another sunny day here at Appi with the temperatures dipping to the below freezing mark and variable winds. Just a great day to hit the slopes if you can deal with the weekend crowds and fairly sloppy conditions on the mountain today.

The forecast has been changing rapidly and for the better though. We may be looking at a whole week of freezing temperatures coupled with maybe, just maybe, a few centimetres of snow. Partly cloudy skies the next few days with temperatures falling even lower than they are now perhaps to -6. The winds may pick up in the next few days but nothing too remarkable.

As far as the runs go expect Spring like conditions on the runs. Icy at the top turning to slush at the bottom. Not perfect but better than no slush at all right?

Sunscreen check and hit the slopes. Every day that goes by is another day closer to closing. Make good use of what we have.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily until the end, some will become less than daily now that we are in 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.
