Blizzard like conditions here at Appi today with the winds and snow making it virtually impossible to see anything more than 5 meters away and sometimes even less. Couple that with bone chilling temperatures and you got a truly wonderful day on your hands!

This weather will continue throughout the day and into tomorrow morning when hopefully we’ll be able to dig ourselves out. I wouldn’t expect many lifts to be operating today and there’s virtually no chance the main gondola will be operating at all.

In fact, at the time of writing just the bottom Number 1 and 2 lifts as well as the central quad are operating due to the current conditions.

If you planning on doing anything on the mountain today please be careful and wrap up tightly.
