Hello from Appi,

Another cloudy day today but at least we have a little snow falling to make things a little better. The temperature is -2 outside my door. The wind is still fairly light this morning but you can expect it to pick up this afternoon somewhat.

The rest of the weekend offers cloudy skies with some light snowfall on and off again. Stable temperatures around -2 or so at the base and fairly light westerly winds should make it an enjoyable weekend for those coming.

Next week should be interesting with quite a bit of snow in the forecast. If it arrives it'll be a great week for those coming here. We may even see over 20cm each day.

Get your gear on and come and play. The season is winding down here so get some snow while you can.

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.
