Many apologies for the unavoidable break in reporting in the first half of April. We have added some reports to record snowfall since then.

There was some decent snowfall at the end of March and the first few days of April but that was the last of the accumulation to report.

The resort is still open, mainly the central area with the Gondola and three other lifts operating.

The rain we have been getting, along with warming temperatures, hasn't been helping the snow remain. However, all being well part of the ski lifts and courses at Appi hope to remain open until the end of Golden Ween on 6th May.

Looking forward, there is a chance of some light rain overnight tonight but beyond that there's lots more sunshine forecast... though over the coming weekend it shouldn't be quite as warm as it has been these last few days.

A further report will be posted next week.
