Appi Sunday,

Clear blue skies right now and a temperature of -3 outside. Very light winds at the base too. You can expect another bluebird day here at Appi today with the clouds slowly creeping in late this afternoon and evening.

The week starting tomorrow looks very promising for snow and although we may have another slight rise in temperature tomorrow the rest of the week should mean the snow that does arrive might be here for a while too. We may see around 70cm of fresh powder throughout the week which will make those venturing here extremely happy to say the least.

The runs are still in decent shape although the relatively wet snow made things a little trying sometimes. Today should be a great day up there with the morning groomers offering some decent runs.

Sunscreen is a must and so is a camera. The views today should be quite spectacular.

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.
