Good morning from Appi,

After a days worth of rain we’re finally getting the snow we need. Snow predicted for the next few days here. Probably 30+cm today with more to follow overnight and into Friday.

Winds have died down thankfully allowing a relatively decent time on the mountain although you can expect limited visibility all day due too the volume of snow falling, which is a good thing. Cloudy skies and stable temperatures the rest of the week and a steady stream of snow until Saturday.

Appi has closed the second quad lift and sailor gondola yet again making the main gondola the only way to access the second and sailor runs and they’re not even open for a full run. Yesterday the main gondola wasn’t in operation making a daily ski pass virtually worthless. I’m not sure what they’re thinking this year but it’s certainly not about making skiers/boarders happy.

If you want fresh powder and a good time on the slopes get out there now and have a wonderfully white day.
