Good morning from Appi.

Well the new week begins here and another 6cm of snowfall overnight and Appi actually adding some of it to the official base here. It’s not as much as we expected but it’s something. As I type this the sun is out and the winds are very light and we have a very light snow fall. We’re forecast for another 8 cm of snow today but with mostly sunny skies in the works for this afternoon I’ve no idea where it’s coming from. Temperatures should be a chilly —13 at the top of the mountain today with the winds taking the wind-chill to -20.

Still only 17 of 21 runs are open here. The Sailer runs seem to be operating in sporadic fashion with the Sailer gondola still closed. I was over on that side of the mountain this weekend and I’ve no idea why some of those runs are closed as we’ve had plenty of snow. Perhaps my eyesight isn’t as keen as it used to be or Appi is saving those runs for a special occasion. Either way it’s a little disappointing.

The next few days should bring more snow, hopefully. With nearly 20cm forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday coupled with light winds and rising temperatures it should give us a good addition to our meagre base. In typical Appi style expect a morning ice crud on the slopes until mid morning then decent conditions for the rest of the day.

Have a wonderful week.
