Good morning from Appi,

Thankfully the wind has decided to give us a break and it’s looking like a decent day out there...fingers crossed.

The other good news is the Main gondola will be operating today too. Yesterday was full of “technical” issues on the mountain with extremely limited lift operations. I think we had a few upset people waiting for lifts to work.

The weekend ahead is looking significantly better with Saturday bringing partly sunny skies with light winds and steady temperatures of -5 to -10. A warming trend into the beginning of the week with no snow forecast for a few days.
