Hello from Appi,

Well it’s a typical warm Spring day here at Appi. It’s warm and the snow is indeed melting at a fairly rapid rate. I’ll be updating this report with weekly updates now as the season slowly comes to an end here. Over the last week or so we’ve actually had around 15cm of snow but lets face it with the warm weather now gracing our mountain it’s not going to be around for long. Tonight we can expect some rain to dampen spirits even more.

The Gondola as well as 4 other lifts are in operation still with plenty of snow/slush to keep you busy throughout the day at least. The rest of the week brings warmer temperatures that will melt what we have left but we may, just may, have enough snow left for a few last runs during Golden week next month. That would certainly be a nice ending to the season this year.

All in all it’s been fun up here with plenty of snow falling throughout the season.

Stay tuned for an update next week on the snow levels.
