Hello from Appi,

A lot more snow last night. Roughly 18 cm but that's a little understated. The weather today is cloudy, outside temperature right now at -7 with the occasional snow flurry. It's a little windy but seeing as the only two runs that are open are at the base you'll be just fine.

Yes you heard correctly... only two runs still open. A bit disappointing considering the snow we've had this week. Let's hope that changes soon.

The forecast rain is not going to be too pleasant here. Thank goodness it's not coming till Monday (or so the forecast says). Anticipate temperatures rising to +1 or 2 with stable westerly winds.

The two runs open are getting slightly bumpy by mid day but they're open!
