Well it’s the weekend here at Appi and no real news to report.

The much anticipated opening of the Sailer Gondola yesterday did take place but mechanical issues forced it to close after only 30 minutes. It was closed for the rest of the day. Lets hope they’ve fixed what needs to be fixed and it’s in full operation today.

Right now it’s partly cloudy with little to no wind blowing with a base temperature currently -6. it should remain the same throughout the day here with the wind perhaps picking up slightly late in the afternoon. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies till Tuesday with a slight increase in the winds and dropping temperatures. We may see a little light snow over the next few days but nothing to get too excited about.

After a thorough review of the runs yesterday most are in good overall shape but some of the upper Sailer and second runs still have various vegetation type obstacles to avoid when traversing the slope. I think this has been a common problem with most resorts this year especially with so little snowfall. They are doing a good job here of making sure it doesn’t affect the runs too much and I lift my hat to the fellows out there with the weed wacker most days cutting it back.

Have a great weekend.
