Hello from Appi,

Yesterday up until lunch was great but after was unfortunately not. The rain started around 2 and became increasingly stronger throughout the night finally stopping around 2:30 this morning. What does that mean for us here at our little mountain? Well for starters we're back to one open run and a reduction of 15cm from our base. Not a good start to the weekend.

Tonight does look promising with a supposed 10-15cm of snow arriving and a few more cm's Saturday and Sunday. Let's hope it arrives in time for a white Christmas.

Falling temperatures and lighter winds will make it somewhat enjoyable so whatever you do this weekend make sure you come here and at least enjoy what's open!
