Hello from Appi,

Well it is the last day of the year and Appi has opened up two more runs today. One of the Sailer runs opening and the main gondola operation will certainly make people a little happier today and there’s another run off the second lift open too. Look out for stronger winds potentially affecting operations though.

We did get a little snow last night but nothing too serious. We can expect the wind to pick up later this afternoon and if you’re heading out on the slopes today expect some fairly chilly temperatures.

Not much change in store for the next few days weather wise. A little snow forecast and temperatures ranging from -3 at the base to -10 or so at the summit.

There will be a spectacular fireworks display tonight - warm clothes recommended!
