Appi Saturday,

Or maybe not. It is currently blowing a gale here and it’s cold. As you can probably see with the above snow depth we’ve lost 20cm of snow because of the rainfall we had yesterday. It rained most of the day turning the whole resort into a wind blown, rain soaked mess. It finally stopped around 4pm and turned in to snow. With rapidly falling temperatures it made for some fun driving around here last night.

So what’s in store for today? More wind and falling temperatures. You can expect very strong winds all day and temperatures around -8 to -11. Couple that with the wind and you’ve got a cold day in store.

The wind may drop in velocity tomorrow and we may get another few cm of snowfall.

Don’t expect many lifts to be in operation today, as of now there only looks to be 4 of them running. Obviously the main gondola isn’t in operation so there’s no way right now to get to the top. Lets hope that changes soon or today will be a bust.

Dress warm if you’re coming, it's chilly.
