Good morning from Appi.

It’s another blue sky day here with a temperature of -2 outside my front door but the gusty winds are making it feel much colder indeed. It should be sunny most of the day today and the winds may start dying down late this afternoon. We may even see the occasional snow flurry too. Overnight we did get some fresh snow. Although the accumulation was only 5cm I’m sure a little more than that actually fell but the winds last night and this morning made sure some of it didn’t stay around for long. At least we’ve got a decent topcoat this morning for those heading out.

Forecast wise its not that bad as there’s no rain in it right now. More clouds are heading our way tomorrow and the winds may die down somewhat. Temperatures should remain steady in the -5 bracket at least until Sunday. I didn’t have time to hit the slopes yesterday but will report on conditions up there again tomorrow from todays outing. I’m sure the wind will affect the gondola operations again today. As I type this the Main and Sailer Gondola have been stopped. We only have 5 lifts in operation right now. Lets hope the wind dies down so we can at least enjoy the snow that fell last night.

Sunscreen a must today as well as face mask and some extra layers in your backpack.

Currently operating lifts at time of writing:

- Central Number 1 quad
- Number 2 lift A
- T-bar lift
- Number 3 lift B
- Sailer Number 2

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.
