Well it’s snowing here again today and Appi has lifted the official base depth to a whopping 50cm.

Yesterday was as advertised but no real accumulation because of the gusty wind conditions. After taking a peek at some of the closed runs yesterday they remain threadbare in places, especially near the summit, and in all rights should remain closed for a while. How long before they’re open is anyone's guess unfortunately.

We did get an additional 3cm of snowfall overnight and with it forecast to snow most of the day here at least we’ve something to be Appi for. The winds should be fairly light most of the day and into tomorrow with base temperatures steady around -7 and we should see a ‘forecast’ 4-6cm of accumulation.
