Hello from Appi,

Another bluebird day here and we can expect sunny skies all day. The temperature right now is -1 outside my door with fairly light winds. The winds should die down this afternoon too making it an ideal photo day. I was out yesterday on the summit and haven’t seem it this clear in a very long time with excellent views of Mt.Iwate to be had off the second runs.

Tomorrow we may see the clouds roll in and bring a few snow flurries up to 6cm. The temperatures may also rise a degree or two but head firmly into the negative territory by Wednesday and throughout the rest of the week.

The slope were a little icy in parts yesterday until the sun loosened them up a little and we had a very large crowd too. Today may be the same with the holiday weekend extending into today.

Bring your camera and come and take some fantastic shots today.

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.
