Hello from Appi,

The last few days have brought us a fair amount of snow although it’s certainly not the light dry powder we always expect. It’s wet, heavy and is making things unsavoury on the mountain.

Warmer than usual temperatures will stay with us for another day then head back south again. Not much snow looking out to the next week either but we will have some sunny days to look forward to.

Most runs are sluggish with the groomers offering at least a semi decent day.

-----

The 18cm represents the fresh snow over the last three days with 7cm falling overnight. Apologies for the missed reports.
