Morning from Appi.

No changes to operations to report with the five lifts still moving (when weather allows - I think there was some disruption yesterday) and planning to be moving through until the end of Golden Week on Sunday 6th May. At the time of writing you can still ride from top to base as well.

Good stable weather conditions are forecast for the coming weekend. More unstable weather is currently forecast for the second part of Golden Week.

If you are planning on being around over the next week, I recommend that you check with the resort.

This may need to be my last report until later next week. Hope you have a good Golden Week!

Official snow depth:

140cm

Golden Week

Golden Week is a period from the end of April through early May containing a number of national holidays. Those holidays are as follows:

- 29th April is 'Showa Day' (Showa-no-hi), the birthday of former Emperor Showa
- 3rd May is 'Constitution Day' (Kenpo-kinenbi)
- 4th May is 'Greenery Day' (Midori-no-hi)
- 5th May is 'Children's Day' (Kodomo-no-hi)

What this means for 2018 is that most people will enjoy two long weekends - 3 days this upcoming weekend and then 4 days off the weekend after:

Long Weekend #1: Saturday 28th April - Monday 30th April
Long Weekend #2: Thursday 3rd - Sunday 6th May

Some people may even be lucky enough to have/take Tuesday and Thursday off next week, giving them a long 9 day holiday!

AS THE SNOW ARRIVES...
Please note that some of our 'Now' reports may appear a little later than usual over the coming few days. As ski resorts start to open up, more information needs to be gathered and so more time is needed. Thank you for your understanding.
