Hello from Appi Kogen!

Well, it's the start of a brand new season here and we have been deluged with snow for the last 3 days up here. Over 60+cm of the stuff and its cold enough that it may just stay around until the resort opens.

** Note that we are adding 60cm to the report today --- that amount has not fallen today, rather up until now.

Official opening day here is December 2nd. Appi has spent some much needed money on new snowmaking equipment, specially for the lower slopes, and it’s paying dividends. There's a tremendous base already although figures elusive right now I’ve no doubt we shall be open on December 2nd.

During the off season (that’s summer for you snow types) Appi has been upgrading their facilities and there should be more offerings this season as far as restaurants, bars and other stuff goes. We’re just waiting like the rest of you to see exactly whats on offer but more choices and venues is going to help everyone have a better experience on and off the mountain.

As soon as the resort opens I’ll be sure to update you all on exactly what we’ve got, what we’ve lost and more importantly what slopes are open.

That's less than 2 weeks away people so dust off your winter gear, put some fresh wax on your board or skis and get ready for the 2017/18 season!
