Good morning from Appi,

Yesterday was a good snow day here with an unofficial 18cm dropping outside my house. The official Appi base layer has also increased to 120cm because of the 2 days of snow. Right now I’m looking at cloudy skies, a temperature of -8 and some very light snow falling. The snowfall should continue throughout the day increasing in intensity late evening when we should see a fair amount fall overnight.

Winds should increase somewhat tomorrow but we’ll see a steadily increasing temperature until Sunday when it dips to the -10 range again. Overall the next few days look good for heading on to the mountain.

The Main and Sailer Gondola should be in operation today along with most Second and Sailer runs. Those of you who are first lift people you’re going to have a few hours of nice powder and empty runs.

Currently planned operating lifts:

- Appi Gondola
- Central Number 1 quad
- Number 2 lift A
- Number 2 lift B
- Number 3 lift B
- Number 3 lift C
- Number 4 lift
