Good morning from Appi,

Spring has officially arrived here with quite the rain showers yesterday and today. The temperature has risen sharply and is now 9 degrees on my thermometer. We’ll see rain most of the day here variable westerly winds.

The weekend will hopefully bring another freeze to make the weekend at least semi pleasurable. Now that it’s March we’re going to have some fairly wide temperature swings and next week promises anything from -6 to plus 10 degrees.

The slopes are, well... they’re wet. You can expect a fair amount of thick, slushy wet snow out there today and for that matter most of next week too.

Lets face it though after the amount of great snow we’ve had this year it’s still not a bad way to end.

---

We will endeavour to keep the reports updated regularly until the end of the season at Appi (though it won't be daily).
