PLEASE NOTE:

After the early season snowfall - some more since my last report and before Sunday, that's the number in the report today - Appi Kogen is currently open. Or should we say officially 'pre-open' until Friday. Just the Central number 2 lift and a base run open for the moment.

Then from Saturday (2nd December), the resort plans to properly open with 5 lifts planned to be operating as below:

- Appi Gondola
- Central quad
- Central number 2 lift
- Central number 3 lift (B)
- Number 4 lift

...and over 15km of skiable courses available! That's really not bad at all for the very beginning of the season! Hopefully the start of an impressive snow season for the region.

Keep an eye on the forecast and we will post more soon:

Appi Kogen 6 day snow and weather forecast

It has been milder the last few days but it's looking good for fresh snow from Friday.
