Good morning from Appi,

Currently cloudy with some light snow falling and a temperature of -3 outside my door. It's been a good week so far with another 15cm falling last night on top of the 20cm the day before! We can expect another 15+cm today too.

Fairly light winds for most of the week and into the weekend should make on piste conditions wonderful. Stable temperatures most of the week too with the sun maybe trying to show its face on Saturday.

All the runs are open and are in great shape. Take advantage of the fresh overnight powder and get out there early.

*** PLEASE NOTE: Todays snowfall includes 20cm that was missed yesterday ***

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.
